Arsenal have been quoted €15 million for midfield target Blaize Matuidi.
The French international has been linked with a handful of clubs across Europe, with Liverpool thought to be one of the clubs keen on bringing the player to England.
Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of the St Etienne star, and the Arsenal boss now knows the figure will be enough to bring the player to the Emirates this summer.
"The right fee is €15million (£13.2m). We will not discuss anything lower," club president Roland Romeyer told The Progress.
"The rule is that you contact the club to which he belongs before the player himself. Paris does things backwards," he continued, criticising Paris St Germain following allegations of an approach.
Whilst Wenger has vowed to fight in an effort to keep Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas at the club, reports claim the pair could leave north London this summer and leave the Arsenal boss short in midfield.
"For me, Fabregas is with Arsenal for a long time and he will stay with Arsenal," said the Frenchman with regards to his club captain despite constant speculation linking him with Barcelona.
Should either leave, Matuidi could be an ideal replacement, and the fact that the 24-year-old wants Champions League football makes Arsenal a suitable destination for the player as well.
