Arsenal are eyeing Swansea City striker Michu.

The Sunday Mirror says Arsenal will be told to pay £25million to make Michu their transfer Plan B.

Forward Michu is understood to be among a B-list of possibilities for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, but Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins is prepared to play hardball.

Jenkins convinced Michu to sign a new contract with the Swans that runs until 2016 in January as reward for the 27-year-old’s impressive start to life in England.

And as part of that deal, Jenkins believes he has an agreement with Michu that Swansea can ­demand £25m from any interested rivals.
