Arsenal face having to more than double their original bid if they want to sign Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

The Daily Mail says Newcastle will only consider offers of around £20m-25m for the 27-year-old, and it all points to the Gunners again struggling in their battle to land a top transfer target.

A furious Alan Pardew accused Arsenal of being 'disrespectful' in submitting a £12m bid for Cabaye before Newcastle's clash with Manchester City last night.
