Arsenal want to bring in at least two more new signings before the close of the transfer window, according to football.london.
It’s been a good summer so far with Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette having arrived and Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez looking as though they will stay, despite huge speculation to the contrary.
However, it could be about to get even better with Arsene Wenger seemingly determined to keep on spending, in a bid to mount a serious title challenge.
The report claims Wenger’s top targets are Monaco winger Thomas Lemar and Nice midfielder Jean Seri.
Arsenal have so far been frustrated in their attempts to land Lemar, and may have to look elsewhere, with Riyad Mahrez also an option.
As for Seri, the report claims Nice’s involvement in Champions League qualifying means the club will not allow him to leave just yet, while Barcelona are also believed to be interested.

If Seri also proves unobtainable, Arsenal could move for either William Carvalho or Steven N’Zonzi as Wenger seeks another option in central midfield.
If Lemar and Seri were to arrive, it would prove to be a sensational summer for Arsenal and set them up incredibly well for the season ahead.
However, a deal for Lemar looks tricky to pull off and although Seri is believed to have a release clause of just €40m, there does appear to be huge competition for his services.
