The Gunners have been linked with a host of players as Arsene Wenger bids to revamp his squad ahead of the 2016-17 season.

The Arsenal boss has already signalled his intentions to bolster his attacking options at The Emirates with a bid to bring Jamie Vardy to the club from Leicester City.

It has been suggested that Arsenal are keen to bring Lukaku to The Emirates this summer as a possible alternative for Vardy after the Leicester striker opted to commit his future to the Foxes.

Now, Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli is reporting that Arsenal are keen to sign Lukaku and the player wants the deal to happen.
