Premier League giants Arsenal have launched a £92m bid for Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar.
The Gunners reportedly had an offer of £30m rejected initially.
If Arsenal are able to complete the deal, it would surpass the £52m club-record signing of forward Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.
Lemar, who has also been the subject of two failed bids from Liverpool, is currently due to play for France in Thursday’s World Cup Qualifier against the Netherlands at the Stade De France in Paris.
The 21-year-old scored 12 goals in 39 appearances last season as Monaco won the Ligue 1 title for the first time in 17 years.
