However Arsenal appear reluctant to match that valuation, though would be prepared to offer Rice a deal worth £300,000 a week.

Bukayo Saka is also set to earn £300,000-a-week after agreeing terms on a new deal which is set to be announced soon.

It is believed there will be changes to the club’s wage structure as Edu and co. look to attract players who can help Arsenal push on once again.

And the Gunners are also prepared to sell players to raise funds, including midfield maestro Granit Xhaka who was also tipped to move last summer.

Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen are said to be eyeing the Swiss and Arsenal could let him go for around £15m.
