Here in the Football Transfer Tavern, the Daily Mail seem to be under the impression that not only can Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger not take no for an answer, but that he is willing to blow all of his transfer kitty on players from the same club.
Having shown more than a passing interest in Gonzalo Higuain this summer, the Arsenal manager is now set to make a move for three more Real Madrid players and is considering using up his entre transfer find to do so.
Given that he has not spent anything else this summer, it comes as little shock that despite his protests, the manager is now panicking and is desperate to land anyone he can.
Add to this being drawn in the undisputable group of death in the Champions League, and punters in the tavern can understand why he is finally looking to spend big.
With the imminent arrival of Gareth Bale, Carlo Ancelotti is looking to offload a couple of players, and Kaka has already asked to leave. Not only that but Mesut Ozil, Angel Di Maria and Kari Benzema are all considering their futures at the club.
Ozil may have claimed he wanted to stay at the Bernabeu but Florentino Perez is looking to make back some of the money he spent on Bale and is willing to sanction some big name departures this summer.
Wenger has, as we all know, £70 million to spend and will pay top dollar to land the three Real Madrid stars and go some way to getting fans back on side this summer.
Do Arsenal stand any chance of landing at least one of Di Maria, Ozil or Benzema? Let us know your thoughts below.
