Everton expect Arsenal to make a new offer for defender Phil Jagielka.

The Liverpool Daily Post says the Gunners failed in a £12million bid last month for Jagielka as their manager Arsene Wenger seeks to bolster his centre-back options.

Arsenal, though, will return with an improved offer ahead of Wednesday's transfer deadline, with Wenger flush with cash after the recent sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri and able to offer Champions League football.

While Jagielka has shown no inclination of wanting to leave Goodison, Everton manager David Moyes acknowledged earlier this week he would have to sell one of his leading players if he wants to reinforce his squad.
