Friend: Arsenal offered to triple wages of Watford Bosman Pape Gueye

Arsenal have made an attempt for Watford's Bosman signing Pape Gueye.

The departing Le Havre midfielder is eager to break the deal and counting on a club to cough up a fee to Watford in order to be released from his pre-contract.

A source close to Gueye revealed to Le Phoceen: "OM is one of the clubs most interested in Pape, that's clear. There are also Metz, Strasbourg, Angers, Nantes, German, Portuguese and Spanish clubs.

"Arsenal also contacted us with a salary three times higher. But Pape wants to play in Ligue 1 for two or three years before going abroad, and OM is clearly on his short list. It would be a great club for him."
