Reports making the round suggest Arsenal have offered Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez a 4-year deal to beat Barcelona for his signature.
The 26-year-old reportedly has a four-year contract on offer from the Gunners and is edging closer to agreeing to sign.
Arsenal would expect to pay around £35m for his services.
The Daily Mail suggests the Algerian international is tired of waiting for Barcelona to consider his options with Arsenal keen to have him in North London.
However, Mahrez is keen to play Champions League football and knows that is not on offer at the Emirates next term.
But Spanish publication Sport claim he is prepared to make that sacrifice after becoming frustrated with Barca.
