Arsenal ready to bid for Mainz midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin

Arsenal are ready to bid for Mainz midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin this summer.

The Daily Express says Arsenal attempted to sign Gbamin from Mainz last summer, but their bid for the 23-year-old failed.

Gbamin is wanted by a host of Premier League clubs having impressed at Mainz, since joining from Lens.

One sticking point could be the Ivorian's fee.

It's believed Mainz want £40million for Gbamin with Emery set to have a £45m budget for the summer.

But the fee may be lowered if Gbamin wants out, with him admitting that he is ready to move on.
