Arsenal are reportedly beating La Liga side Real Madrid in the transfer battle for Eredivisie club Ajax star Nicolas Tagliafico.
Arsenal are planning to surge ahead of Manchester United and Chelsea in the hunt for the Top 4 in the Premier League.
After two years out, Spanish manager Unai Emery has been tasked with getting the Gunners back into the top competition of Europe.
But the Spaniard’s transfer dealings have hit a stumbling block after Emirates Stadium chiefs told him that there was no money to spend last transfer market.
The ex-goalkeeper worked with Unai at Sevilla, where they won the three consecutive UEFA Europa League. And the Gunners want to line up one star to arrive this summer, in spite of intense interest from Real Madrid.
