ARSENAL chief Edu is planning a summer spending spree as the Gunners look to splash the cash in the transfer window.
Mikel Arteta's men narrowly missed out on the top four at the end of last season as Spurs pipped them to Champions League qualification.

Then in defence, Arteta is almost certainly looking to acquire a centre-back to give Gabriel and Ben White some competition for places.
The Gunners have had a £25m bid for Ajax centre-half Lisandro Martinez rejected.
