Could Arsenal actually spend some cash?
The BBC, along with a couple of papers, claim Arsenal are planning moves for Real Madrid pair Karim Benzema and Angel di Maria because the Madrid giants need cash to fund the Bale deal.
They also claim Arsenal could spend up to £100million before the transfer window closes; 'Arsenal's only summer signing to date is the 20-year old French striker Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer from Auxerre, but it is thought they could spend close to £100m by the close of the transfer window at 23:00 BST on 2 September.'
The Gunners are prepared to pay £40m for 25-year-old France striker Benzema after missing out on Gonzalo Higuain and Liverpool's Luis Suarez.
'Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger also wants Argentina left winger Di Maria, 25, and is understood to be chasing a keeper and a defensive player as well.'
Meanwhile, Wenger has finally given up on signing Luis Suarez, saying there is 'absolutely no chance' of that deal happening now.
