The transfers could cost Arsene Wenger around £40m pound.

But the Londoners could miss out on target James Milner, with the Manchester Evening News reporting that Manchester City are to offer him a £165,000 a week contract to keep him at the Etihad.

Across the city, Manchester United are favourites to sign Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca (Metro) for around £21.3m.
