Datasport says the Gunners have offered â¬6m to bring Marchetti to the Emirates Stadium.
Cagliari are holding out for â¬9m, but could be convinced to lower their expectations a little further.
âHe expressed his desire to leave through the media,â read a statement on the official Cagliari website yesterday.
âThe club will do everything to make him happy, so if Marchetti does leave Cagliari, then our first choice will be Michael Agazzi.
âCagliari are not looking for a different first choice goalkeeper.â
