North London giants Arsenal want to sign two more players before the transfer window closes next month.
This is according to the report from the Daily Mirror which disclosed that the Gunners are targeting two more signings this summer after the contract extension for club skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was wrapped up earlier in the week.
Aubameyang, 31, was the subject of interest from clubs in Spain and Italy before he signed a two-year contract extension. The Gabonese international now has three years on his present Arsenal contract with the potential to earn the highest salary amongst the current crop of players at the Emirates Stadium.
