Arsenal offered €16m for Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina, says Tuttomercatoweb.com.
However, it is understood the Serie A champions want at least €20m for the Gabon international, who they only signed on a permanent deal from Marseille this summer.
Arsenal supporters will not be pleased that once again Arsene Wenger wants to sign another midfielder when they are in need of players in different positions.
The Italian outlet claims that the North London club have already had a €16m (£13.83m) bid rejected by the Serie A champions, stating that the offer was short of their €20m (£17.28m) valuation for the player.
Schalke are also believed to be interested in the 22-year-old.
