Arsenal look set to accelerate their summer spending next week, with three deals worth around £100million set to be concluded.
That is according to numerous sources, including the Daily Mail, who say that the club are ready to spend £70million on Gabriel Jesus and Lisandro Martinez this week.
Mundo Albiceleste are also reporting that Arsenal will follow up with another bid for Lisandro Martinez after their initial £25million offer was rejected.

Arsenal are also said to be closing in on a deal for Jesus. The Daily Mail are just one of a number of sources to claim this. Today, Brazilian source Globo has also claimed that Arsenal are close to making the signing at close to £50million.
According to Di Marzio, Arsenal will do everything to close a deal for Jesus, but they are facing competition from North London rivals, Tottenham.

Vieira will add attacking options to the Arsenal midfield. He was one of the most creative under-23 players in Europe last season and will help reduce the teams reliance on Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard.
If Arsenal can complete deals for all three players, it would be a fantastic start to the transfer window and ensure they have most of their new arrivals in place before pre-season kicks off.
The club will also likely sign a central midfielder, with Youri Tielemans heavily linked.
Arsenal will also be looking to make significant sales this summer. The likes of Lucas Torreira, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Pablo Mari, Bernd Leno and Nicolas Pepe look to be available for transfer, whilst Nuno Tavares could be allowed to leave on loan.
