Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on signing three more players to bolster the club's midfield and defence.

According to the Express, the Gunners boss is ready to sanction a £27.5m triple swoop to land Sami Khedira, Adrien Rabiot and Toby Alderweireld from Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid respectively.

The north London club has been on the market throughout the summer transfer window for a holding midfield player, as a long-term replacement for club captain Mikel Arteta and have been linked to various players.

Sami Khedira is one among them and it is believed that Wenger is finally ready to make a £12m offer to bring the player to the Emirates.

The German international is on the final year of his contract with the Spanish capital club and has also rejected an offer of an extension. This has forced Real to consider cashing out on the player this summer rather than lose him for free the following year.

However, according to recent reports, Carlo Ancelotti has come out and quashed all the speculation by insisting that Khedira will remain at Madrid for the upcoming season, after admitting that all the issues had been resolved.

"Khedira is happy here and he is staying. The matter is resolved and he stays at Real Madrid," Ancelotti said, as quoted in the Daily Mail.

Wenger has also been tracking young Frenchman Rabiot, who is on the final year of his contract and rejected a new deal. It was earlier claimed that the Ligue 1 club was expecting a fee close to £24m, which put off interested clubs, but have now slashed the asking price to £9.5m.

Moreover, PSG boss Laurent Blanc has confirmed that the midfielder will be leaving the club this summer even though the club tried holding on to him by offering him fresh terms.

The third player in Wenger's wish list is Atletico defender Alderweireld. The 64-year-old manager has been scouring the market for a defender to replace Thomas Vermaelen and it looks like he has targeted the Belgian to replace his compatriot at the Emirates.

Alderweireld who moved to the Spanish capital last summer has fallen out of favour and is not considered to be part of manager Diego Simeone's plans for the upcoming season.

The Belgian international is a versatile defender, who can provide cover in multiple defensive positions and is said to be available for a fee in the region of £6m.
