Wenger's £100m wishlist: Arsenal boss targeting these stars to replace Sanchez and Ozil
Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are both yet to sign new deals

ARSENAL boss Arsene Wenger is already making plans for a huge summer spending spree, according to reports.

Express Sport understands the Frenchman will stay on for at least another season with his current contract set to expire in the summer.

The Arsenal boss faces a tough fight on his hands to keep hold of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil though, with the star duo having just 15 months remaining on their deals.

Both stars are thought to be demanding contracts worth over £300,000 a week but Arsenal are yet to meet their expectations.

And according to The Mirror, Wenger is planning for life without his star players with the club set to back him with a budget of over £100m.

The report claims Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette, Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe, Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus and Celtic star Moussa Dembele are all players Wenger wants to bring to the club.

The Gunners offered £40m to sign Lacazette last summer but Lyon were reluctant to let him go.

Arsenal are likely to have to offer more than that fee to tempt him away in the summer, while Mbappe and Dembele, who are both attracting interest from Manchester United, won't come cheap either.

Bringing in a new goalkeeper is also said to be part of Wenger's plans to take Arsenal to the next level and Stoke's Jack Butland is top of the list while Jordan Pickford and Joe Hart remain on his radar.

With a host of new arrivals planned, Wenger will have to get rid of some of the deadwood in his squad.

Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere all have one year left to run on their current contracts, while Nacho Monreal's future is also unclear.

Aaron Ramsey is another name mentioned in the report that has been tipped to leave with Everton's Ross Barkley seen as an ideal replacement.
