According to Italian daily sports newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport Arsenal has made Napoli a £29.4 million offer for star striker Gonzalo Higuain.
The Serie A side however feel he is worth more money and will hold out until they get an offer closer to the £38 million they want for the Argentinian.
The Gunners feel as though they have a real chance to win the Premier League next season given the way they played towards the end of their last campaign, yet manager Arsene Wenger knows he needs to bring in a few top players in order to compete with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City.
The 27-year-old was already keen to join a different team, and now given the fact Napoli will not be competing in the Champions League makes the odds of him leaving even more likely.
Here at Soccer Transfers we think Napoli are correct in their valuation of the former real Madrid man and feel Arsenal will have to come back with an improved offer and a higher salary then the £84,000 per-week that they are reported to be willing to pay.
Again it would appear as if manager Arsene Wenger is out of touch with his valuation of players, and in the end this may hurt Arsenal from signing the big names stars the club needs.
