It was Sports who revealed Pep Guardiola recently had dinner with Araujo’s agent to discuss his client’s availability.

Elsewhere, a separate report from Sport claimed Liverpool are keen on the man with a £167 million release clause.

However, Arsenal are making the biggest moves.

Recently, the Gunners offered Araujo a contract worth £96,153-a-week with his current terms at the Camp Nou expiring in June.

That was apparently turned down as the north Londoners have now tabled an offer of €8m a year (£6.7m), which translates to £128,846 a week.

Interesting, ABC claim Araujo is said to be uncomfortable at the Camp Nou as he feels he is not being offered what he deserves.

In our view, Arsenal could make a big mark on the rest of Europe if they fend off Liverpool and Manchester City to sign Araujo.

Aside from that, ABC believe Barcelona are desperate to keep the South American so Arsenal could embarrass three of the biggest clubs in Europe if they win this race.

Araujo has the potential to become one of the best centre-backs in the world and the Gunners are determined to sign him after returning with an improved offer.

However, we’re not sure if he’ll be needed at the Emirates Stadium.

Arteta already has Ben White and Gabriel Magalhães to choose from, while William Saliba also returns this summer – the Gunners also have Rob Holding.

Arteta only uses two centre-backs so doesn’t need five in the squad.

Still, Arsenal seem to be big fans of Araujo so keep an eye on this interesting transfer saga.
