Arsenal are still pushing ahead on securing a major transfer double deal with just over a week until the start of the new Premier League season.
Top officials are looking to make breakthrough talks with Sheffield United for goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and midfielder Sander Berge.
Sheffield United value England stopper Ramsdale at near £40million and Norwegian international Berge at £35million – the Blades are in no rush to cash-in despite being relegated and without their valuations being met, would rather see the duo push the club back to England’s top tier.
Arsenal on the other hand may have to sell to be able to finance the deals that could total £75m, with Hector Bellerin and Granit Xhaka still subject of transfer speculation.
According to a report in the Express the Gunners are far from done spending big money this summer and are making the Sheffield United pair priority signings.
