Arsenal have made another offer to contract rebel Alexis Sanchez in a bid to keep him from Bayern Munich’s clutches.
The deal is understood to be about £270,000 a week, short of the £300,000 the Chile star is demanding. However, the offer is loaded with incentives taking it closer to the figure he wants.
Further talks are planned after Arsenal face Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday.
Bayern are tipped to land Sanchez if he refuses to sign a new deal this summer, and Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested.
Speculation that he has already decided heightened this week when the Chile FA accidentally listed him as a Bayern player.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also due to discuss a new deal after the final. He is entering the final year of his contract, and Liverpool are showing serious interest in him.
