Arsenal are eyeing moves for Celtic striker Moussa Dembele and Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk as Arsene Wenger aims to turn the Gunners into title contenders.

Having already brought Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette to the Emirates – the latter in a club-record deal worth more than £50million – Wenger intends to push on in the summer market.
