WENGER TO LAUNCH £100M SPENDING SPREE
That's according to the Daily Mail, who claim Arsene Wenger is ready to splash the cash after finally committing to a new three-year contract.

The Mail claim that Karim Benzema, Loic Remy and Lars Bender are all on Wenger's shortlist, while Arsenal are also in the market for a new right-back and back-up keeper following the departures of Bacary Sagna and Lukasz Fabianski.

"We know we have to have a successful June and July, that's where you strengthen the team," said Wenger. "Should the fans expect a big summer? Yes, they should expect that."

Other names on the Gunners' radar are Schalke right-back Atsuto Uchida, Southampton pair Calum Chambers and Morgan Schneiderlin, and strikers Mario Mandzukic and Alvaro Morata.

It looks like it could be a busy summer at the Emirates as Wenger tries to harness the joy of May's FA Cup win.


LIVERPOOL INCREASE LALLANA BID
According to the Guardian, Liverpool have increased their offer for Adam Lallana to £20m as Brendan Rodgers attempts to push through a deal before the World Cup.

The Reds initially offered £20m for the England winger, but slapped another £5m on the table to try and tempt Southampton down from their £30m valuation.

The Saints are digging their heels in over the fee as Bournemouth are entitled to 25% of anything they receive for Lallana.


NEWCASTLE'S CABELLA BID REJECTED
Newcastle have been knocked back in their attempt to sign Remy Cabella from Montpellier.

The playmaker scored 14 goals in 37 matches in Ligue 1 this season, prompting Toon to offer around £7m for his services.

However, it's thought that Montpellier are demanding closer to £12m, with chairman Laurent Nicollin insisiting the France international won't be sold on the cheap.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are also chasing Cagliari forward Victor Ibarbo, who is available for around £8m. The 24-year-old is also being tracked by Barcelona, Stuttgart, Juventus and Napoli.

@CamberleyGooner, Yeah of course Wenger said that, we've gotta get those season tickets sold. They trot out the same lines this time every year, £70m to spend, £100m to spend, this big name, that big name but once the bums are on seats the normal excuses soon follow.
