ARSENE WENGER is set to kick start his summer of spending with bids for Arturo Vidal and Jackson Martinez.

According to reports in Italy, the midfielder has agreed terms with the north London club and will join after the Champions League final on June 6.

Liverpool were said to be keen on the former Man United target, but failed with a bid for the Chile star.

Meanwhile, the Gunners have also agreed a contract with Porto striker Jackson Martinez, according to Portuguese newspaper Jornal di Noticias.

They suggest a 'principle agreement’ has been reached between the player and the club, with a move to the Premier League set to follow after this weekend's FA Cup final.

The striker is understood to have a £24.8m release clause in his contract.

And Arsenal are now favourites to meet that fee, ahead of fellow interests parties Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool.
