A SunSports reporter, Mark Irwin has claimed that North London outfit Arsenal are poised to sign three players, including Thomas Partey, Gabriel Magalhaes, and Dani Ceballos this summer transfer window.

The report also claims that the Gunners will be spending £100 million to be able to achieve this transfer feat as they are hoping to cash in from the sale of Lucas Torreira, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Matteo Guendouzi, Mohamed Elneny, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Shkodran Mustafi this summer window.

However, the North London outfit are not sure of snapping two of their three main targets following the latest reports coming from their camps at Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid for Thomas Partey and Dani Ceballos respectively.

Atletico Madrid club president, Enrique Cerezo in an interview with TeleMadrid expressed confidence that the Ghana international midfielder will not be leaving the club this term, which means an agreement has not been reached with Arsenal on a deal.

He added that Thomas Partey can still be a key part of the club in the coming season despite claims that the player seeks a move away from the Spanish La Liga.

Also, the future of Dani Ceballos is yet to be decided as Real Madrid are yet to confirm his exit from the club because an option of a buy was not included in his loan deal which means both clubs have to begin fresh talks.
