Arsenal director Sanellhi: Transfer talks have already begun

Arsenal's head of football Raul Sanellhi has revealed the club's summer transfer window is underway.

The Gunners can give a boost to their transfer kitty by qualifying for Champions League with a win over Chelsea in the Europa League final on Wednesday.

And Sanellhi has revealed they have already begun transfer negotiations with targets.

"What I can tell you is that we have identified very clearly and unanimously with our head coach and technical people, we know what we want to prioritise and we're very clear on what our priorities are," Sanllehi said.

"We're already in the market and we're already talking with the people that can help us to cover those positions and I feel quite strong.

"It's going well and the image that Arsenal has in the football world is very strong.

"Vinai was mentioning we're a top world club and we are, so we need to go where we belong and that's the Champions League.

"Many players really want us to be there also when we're talking with them, but I feel quite strong on the inputs that I'm getting so far.

"I do believe that we have a very good plan to cover those positions to be much stronger next year, to deliver the success that we're all hoping for."
