Arsenal line up sensational this double summer transfer swoop

Arsenal are planning to start the new era at the club with a huge double bid for two of Europe’s biggest players.
The Mirror reports that they are in the hunt for not one, but two of Europe’s most sought after stars.
They remain hot on the heels of Nice’s highly-rated Jean-Michael Seri, with Gunners’s head of football relations, Raul Sanllehi in constant contact with the Ivorian.
The 26-year-old has already been interesting Manchester United and Chelsea but would have more chance of being a regular at the Emirates.
Not content with tracking one top midfielder, Arsenal have also joined the chase for sought after Jorginho. The Napoli man is interesting a host of clubs and his Joao Santos agent said: “I’m in Brazil, nobody called me from Naples, but English teams have called me, Liverpool, Manchester City, but also Arsenal and Chelsea.”
That would be some midfield pairing.
Successor
Arsene Wenger’s successor in the Emirates hot-seat is closer to being named, according to the Sun.
The paper reports former midfielder Mikel Arteta is closing in on replacing the Frenchman, but another name being linked with the position is Thierry Henry.
Pep Guardiola will not stand in the way of Arteta becoming the next Arsenal manager but says he will be “the happiest guy in the world” if he stays with Manchester City.
City assistant coach Arteta, a former Gunners player, is reported to be one of the prime candidates to take over at the Emirates Stadium following the end of Arsene Wenger’s 22-year reign.
The 36-year-old began working with City after retiring from playing in 2016 and performed a key role in this season’s title success.
Guardiola, speaking after champions City beat Southampton to become the first club to accumulate 100 Premier League points, said he “wants the best” for his friend and colleague Arteta.
“What we have done this season, Mikel his contribution was outstanding, amazing, we work together so good,” said City boss Guardiola.
“If he stays I will be the happiest guy in the world and if he decides to move because he has this offer, this option, I will not say you do not have to go.
“I want the best for my friends and he’s a friend of mine.
“If he decides to go, I will be so sad but I will understand his decision because it’s his career, his life, his family, and I am not the right guy to say you don’t have to do that.
“But hopefully he can stay and finish what we started together in the upcoming years.”
While City ended the season with a 1-0 win at St Mary’s, Gunners boss Wenger signed off by beating Huddersfield by the same scoreline.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti and ex-Gunners captain Patrick Vieira are among the other names linked with replacing the long-serving Frenchman.
