Arsenal are reportedly raising their offer for Napoli and Albania right-back Elseid Hysaj to €19m.
He was snapped up from Empoli a year ago, following Coach Maurizio Sarri to the Stadio San Paolo.
The Gunners had already shown interest in Hysaj over the last few days, as did Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Monaco and Atletico Madrid.
However, French site Le10Sport claim that Arsenal are raising their bid from €15m to €19m.
As the 22-year-old only cost them €5m, that would represent a huge profit for Napoli.
However, the Partenopei are in the Champions League next term and do not want to dismantle their squad.
“I consider Arsenal to be on the same level as Napoli, certainly not better,” agent Mario Giuffredi told Radio Crc.
“Napoli have become one of the most important clubs in Europe.”
