Arsenal have upped their efforts to sign long term target Thomas Lemar, with the Gunners launching a massive £92m bid for the player.
The North London club have been in talks to sign Lemar all summer with the Gunners having had a £30m offer rejected by the French side in July.
And on the eve of transfer deadline day, Arsenal hae returned with an offer three times bigger than the last one as they make a last-ditch attempt for the player.
If Arsenal are able to complete the deal, it would surpass the £52m club-record signing of forward Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.
Lemar, who has also been the subject of two failed bids from Liverpool, is currently due to play for France in Thursday’s World Cup Qualifier against the Netherlands at the Stade De France in Paris.
The 21-year-old scored 12 goals in 39 appearances last season as Monaco won the Ligue 1 title for the first time in 17 years.
