Arsenal are lining up a stunning £55m double-swoop for Germany stars Mario Gotze and Lukas Podolski, according to reports in Germany.
Bild has claimed that Arsene Wenger is ready to approach Cologne for striker Podolski and also firm up his long-term interest in Dortmund teenager Gotze.
It is understood that Gotze, who faced Arsenal in the Champions League earlier this season, will not be sold for less than £35m this summer, while 26-year-old Podolski will be available for £20m.
It has been reported that Wenger could have up to £100m to spend during the summer after a disappointing season which looks set to end without silverware for the seventh year running.
But the level of investment in the team could depend on Arsenal, who are currently fourth, qualifying for next season's Champions League.
