Arsenal will have to offer Auxerre striker Paul-Georges Ntep wages upwards of €100,000-a-month if they hope to bring him to the Premier League, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

The 21-year-old Ligue 2 striker has been targeted by a number of clubs, including Stade Rennais and Championship side QPR, but is thought to be unwilling to move unless suitors meet his demands.

It’s now claimed that Stade Rennais, who were previously in pole position to sign him, are backing off as they are unwilling to meet the cost. Subsequently, L’Equipe newspaper believes that an offer is imminent from QPR, who are more than capable of paying the mooted €100,000-a-month due to their impressive financial backing.

Auxerre president Guy Cotret yesterday moved to deny that any negotiations had taken place between the club and Arsenal, who are said to be keeping tabs on the youngster as Arsene Wenger looks to bring another striker in.

It now looks as though the Gunners’ main competition will be QPR, though it remains to be seen whether or not they will try to hijack any proposal from Harry Redknapp’s side.
