Arsenal are on the lookout for top quality players ahead of next season.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push next season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best in the summer to achieve his target.
Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in the summer, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Arsenal have surprisingly been linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets, according to reports.
Arsene Wenger is said to have personally asked the Arsenal board to sign the multiple award winning star this summer, and is looking to personally agree a deal with the player, with The Telegraph claiming the Gunners are preparing a huge salary package for the Barcelona ace.
The Sabadell-born midfielder, who rose up the youth ranks at Barcelona’s famous La Masia academy to the first team under coach Pep Guardiola, currently earns €170,000-a-week at Barcelona, and only an increased salary would tempt him to move.
The current highest salary earners at the Emirates Stadium take home £140,000-a-week and it is likely Busquets will be offered a weekly wage slightly above £140,000-a-week which would make him the highest earner at Arsenal should he make the switch to England.
The 27-year-old Spain international has won every club and international trophy he has competed in, including the World Cup, European Cup, 3 Champions league titles, and 5 League titles among a host of several other titles.
