Arsenal face stiff competition for the signing of Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye, with the Independent reporting that Paris Saint-Germain have offered £5m more for the France international.
The French champions, who have already spent close to £100m this summer on several star names, are keen to nip in ahead of Arsenal and add the unsettled Cabaye to their ranks.
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew slammed the timing of Arsenal's £10m bid, describing it as "disrespectful", following the Magpies' 4-0 defeat at Manchester City on Monday night.
Pardew confirmed that Cabaye was not in the right frame of mind to play, hence his omission from the squad.
And with less than two weeks to go before the transfer window closes, it seems increasingly likely that Cabaye has played his final match for the north east outfit.
How determined Arsenal are to sign the 27-year-old is another matter. The Gunners have also been linked with Juventus starlet Paul Pogba, but Wenger is likely to only sign one of the French midfielders this summer.
