Sevilla hope to ward off interest in Grzegorz Krychowiak by offering the Poland international a substantial pay rise in a new contract, Eurosport has reported.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger rubbished rumours linking the 25-year-old with a possible move to the Emirates before the Crystal Palace game but recent reports have claimed that the midfielder is a target for the Frenchman.
Last week, Spanish football expert Graham Hunter declared that the player would be a top signing for the Gunners as he would bring strength and goals to the Arsenal midfield.
"First of all it is news to Sevilla that Arsenal have looked at Krychowiak," Hunter told Sky Sports News HQ.
"[But] if Arsenal decide that this fierce, tough-tackling, clever, goal-scoring central-midfielder - who meets the criteria of what critics of Wenger have been saying Arsenal have needed for three four or five seasons – then yes, he would suit them."
