Arsenal are confident of concluding a deal for Alexis Sanchez by next week as they close in on a £50million spree for three players.

The Chilean’s representatives are expected to arrive in London to agree personal terms for the Barcelona forward.

An £11m move for Newcastle defender Mathieu Debuchy is almost complete and an £8m swoop for QPR striker Loic Remy is held up only by his personal terms.

Sanchez is set to be offered a similar package to top-earner Mesut Ozil, who is paid £140,000 a week. Arsenal will meet Barcelona’s £30m valuation, allowing the Spanish side to complete a £75m deal for Liverpool forward Luis Suarez.

Sportsmail understands Remy, who earns £75,000 a week at Loftus Road, and Arsenal are still some distance apart on terms but Debuchy is on the brink of completing his protracted switch to the Emirates after having a medical on Monday.

He will replace Bacary Sagna, who has joined Manchester City, as the club’s first-choice right back. – Daily Mail
