Arsenal have had an 80m (72m) offer for the winger Nicolas Pp accepted by Lille and hope to beat Napoli to the signing of the Ivory Coast international.
The Premier League club are ready to smash their transfer record to secure the 24-year-old on a five-year contract and lead Napoli in the race to buy him, although the Italian club will make a fresh bid. Arsenal are understood to be in advanced talks with the player.
Pp scored 22 goals in the French league last season, second to Paris Saint-Germains Kylian Mbapp, and provided 11 assists before joining the Ivory Coast squad for the recent Africa Cup of Nations. He was born in France and has also played for Angers and on loan at Orlans.
The signing of Pp would break the club record 56m Arsenal paid to get Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018. This summer Arsenal have brought in the midfielder Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid on loan and two 18-year-olds the forward Gabriel Martinelli and the defender William Saliba, who has been sent straight back to Saint-tienne on loan for next season.
