According to Dailymail, Arsenal have £135m in the bank but Arsene Wenger is expected to get £70m to spend as he plans to recruit a brand new spine for his team ahead of what could be his final season at the club.
The Gunners are close to finalising terms with Nigerian teenage midfielder Kelechi Nwakali but have drawn up a list of targets for the summer.
Wenger wants a new centre back, holding midfielder and striker this summer, while some of his current squad will also be allowed to leave.
With scouts already briefed on their transfer plans, here Sportsmail assesses some of the targets on Wenger's wishlist.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund - £60m)
|Aubamenyang is the reigning African footballer of the year and highest goalscorer in the Bundesliga|
The Gabon international has been in sparkling form scoring 29 goals in 31 games. Arsene Wenger is a fan but the 26-year-old Dortmund striker says Spain is his preferred destination should he leave. That could yet put alternative targets Karim Benzema and Robert Lewandowski in Arsenal's path.
Victor Wanyama (Southampton - £20m)
|Arsenal have tried to sign Wanayama for the past two seasons|
Arsenal have watched the Kenya international several times, however, no approach has yet been made. Wanyama is ready to leave but the Emirates looks an unlikely destination. Arsenal have also checked on Borussia Monchengladbach's Havard Nordtveit, Granit Xhaka and Mahmoud Dahoud plus Vincent Koziello at Nice.
Odion Ighalo (Watford - £20m)
|Odion Ighalo has been one of the revelation of the season with Watford|
He has scored 14 goals in his Premier League debut season and Ighalo's all-action style has drawn admiring glances from Chelsea and Atletico Madrid who have put the 26-year-old Nigerian striker on their shortlist. Arsenal remain to be convinced he is clinical enough but are interested.
N'Golo Kante (Leicester - £20m)
|Kante who has a Malian descendant has been one of the stand out performers this season|
Unsung hero of Leicester's Premier League campaign but now a name on the list of all top clubs. A disciplined reader of the game, Kante is French born and there was a frustration at Arsenal, as with Riyad Mahrez, his merits weren't truly assessed in early scouting reports.
