Arsenal can sign both Youri Tielemans and Djed Spence for as little as £37million this summer, reports have claimed. Arsenal are set to be in the market for at least one striker in the next transfer window so will have to be smart with their other targets.
Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both out of contract at the end of the season. They could follow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang out of the door after his departure to Barcelona in January.
Arsenal would likely have to reserve a large part of their transfer fund on strengthening their strikeforce. But there are other areas of the pitch they are keen on adding to as well.
Central midfield and right-back are positions Mikel Arteta wants to recruit in. And he can fill both of those wishes for just £37m.

Arsenal did not get a single penny for Aubameyang and could lose Lacazette for nothing as well. Therefore they will have to be smart in the market to budget for a top striker.
The Gunners spent £150m last summer on six new signings but the arrivals of Tielemans and Spence would account to less than a third of that outlay. If Arsenal were prepared to spend that figure again, they would have plenty left in order to recruit up top.
Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Benfica’s Darwin Nunez have both been linked with a move to the Emirates.
