Arsenal are reportedly working hard to complete moves to sign at least two players before the World Cup commences next month.

The report by states that the Gunners are planning to make some necessary additions to their squad in all departments and will spend at least £100m to do so.

Beginning with the striking department, Arsenal will have only two strikers in Olivier Giroud and Yaya Sanogo before the start of next season as Nicklas Bendtner looks set to see out the remaining months of his contract.

Arsene Wenger is looking to ease the burden on Giroud's shoulders and desperately wants to sign a striker. The Frenchman is reportedly plotting moves for compatriots Loic Remy from Queens Park Rangers or Karim Benzema from Real Madrid.

Arsenal are purported to be in pursuit of Antoine Griezmann from Real Sociedad and are seeking the 23-year-old winger's services on a high-priority basis.

The north London club are also looking to sign a midfielder for the long-term as a potential replacement for Mikel Arteta, who turned 32 in March. Bayer Leverkusen's Lars Bender is believed to be among the targets Arsenal are keen on signing in the coming months.

Wenger's current contract at the Emirates too expires at the end of the season. However, the Frenchman has reaffirmed that he will be signing an extension and that looks likely to happen only after their season concludes following the FA Cup final on 17 May.

Arsenal might also need to make some signings to strengthen their back four with doubts over Bacary Sagna and Thomas Vermaelen's future.

The French international's contract too expires in June and Wenger recently revealed that the right-back is yet to respond to the offered extension.

Wenger is reportedly lining up a move for Southampton youngster Callum Chambers, should his compatriot decide to walk away from the Emirates.

Meanwhile, Vermaelen has played a highly peripheral role this season making only seven Premier League starts, four of which came last month. But Wenger has quashed all doubts suggesting that the Belgian international might be headed for the exit door during the upcoming transfer window.

The 64-year-old has also stressed that he will not be making more than two or three signings as he does not want to allow any room for instability in his squad.
