Arsenal are currently weighing up the prospect of a second offer for Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann that moves closer to the Spanish side's £24m valuation of the French flier, according to The Metro.

The Gunners tabled an opening £12m bid last night after losing Theo Walcott to a season-ending knee injury, with Nicklas Bendtner also on the treatment table to leave attacking options thin at the Premier League table toppers.

Griezmann has been in the form of his life this season, scoring 12 goals in 16 La Liga matches to spearhead Sociedad's bid to earn an instant return to the Champions League next season.

Gunners scouts have been monitoring the French forward closely and gave the green light to an official offer last night, with an opening £12m rejected by Sociedad chiefs who value their prized asset at much closer to £24m.

Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United are also believed to be interested but Arsenal have fired the opening shot in what may well be a protracted race to prize Griezmann from the Basque country, with the 22-year-old fast becoming one of European football's hottest properties.
