Arsenal are plotting a surprise £75 million bid for Real Madrid player Marco Asensio. Arsene Wenger looks to push through some new signings ahead of the transfer window deadline.
The Gunners are willing to activate the 20-year old's release clause and sign him up before the summer transfer window closes.
The player is locked in contract talks with the La Liga champions but is concerned about his playing time this season.
Asensio has already turned down a move to the French giants PSG and Real Madrid are planning to tie him down to a mega money deal with his release set at a whopping €500 million.
Arsenal will demand £40m + £1 from Liverpool for Chamberlain
According to reports, Arsenal have told Liverpool that if they wish to sign their midfielder, the Reds would have pay £40 million + £1.
The England winger has already turned down a 180k-a-week contract from the Gunners and is looking to leave Emirates before the summer transfer window closes.
The 24-year old is in his final 12 months of contract and Wenger must decide whether to sell him now let him go for free next season.

Sanchez demands £400k-a-week
Alexis Sanchez has entered into his last 12 months of contract and Arsene Wenger has time and again said that the player is not for sale. The Gunners boss would rather let him run out his contract and leave for free next term than sell him now.
Manchester City have always been interested in the midfielder and it is believed that Pep's side are planning one last bid to take the Chilean away from Emirates.
The Chile international has already turned down a £300k-a-week contract. However, it is believed that he would consider staying at Arsenal if he is given a £400k-a-week contract, making him the highest paid footballer in the Premier League.
Meanwhile the 28-year old has been declared fit to play against Liverpool and Wenger would love to have him back in the squad ahead of a big clash at the Anfield.
