Arsenal are now clear to secure the acquisition of their main target in the transfer window this month according to reports.

Arsene Wenger has so far managed to secure the signature of Konstantinos Mavropanos who was included in the squad which traveled to Chelsea on Wednesday.

But with a place in the top four of the Premier League now in jeopardy, the Arsenal manager is likely to make more acquisitions.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal now have a clean path to land the signing of Bordeaux star Macolm.

The latest development is due to the fact that Tottenham Hotspur have dropped their interest in the forward, paving the way for Arsenal to make their move.

Bordeaux are seeking a fee in the region of £45million for the 20-year-old which has driven away Tottenham, a club with minimal funds due to their new stadium expenses.

Arsenal are expected to make considerable profit from the eventual sale of Sanchez and that could help the Gunners meet Bordeaux’s asking price for Macolm.
