Arsene Wenger is determined to sign the 21-year-old from Monaco, even favouring the Frenchman over Leicester star Riyah Mahrez.
The Gunners have had bids of £30 million and £40 million rejected, but Emirates officials believe that their next offer, which is understood to be over £45 million, will convince the French champions.
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Wenger said: ‘He’s a player that we follow yes, we look at,’ the Frenchman said of the winger. ‘We are looking at more signings. But there’s nothing really concrete about any signings’.
