Frenchman is one of the most coveted players in Ligue 1 at present.
Long-term Arsenal target Remy Cabella will cost the north London club 100 million euros this summer according to the playmaker’s employers, Montpellier, reports talkSPORT.co.uk.
Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger has apparently been keeping close tabs on the exciting young midfield player ever since Cabella played a starring role in the Ligue 1 outfit’s surprise charge towards the 2011-12 title in France.
And it had been expected that the Gunners boss would follow up that interest with a concrete offer for the highly-skilled France Under-21 international when the transfer window reopens for business at the start of next month.
Cabella, 23, is contracted to Montpellier until the end of June 2016 and that is why his club have come out to insist that unless a potential suitor is willing to break the bank for the attacking midfield player this summer, then he will still be with them at the start of the next campaign.
“He is non-transferable. We try to anticipate and plan things, even in football, but it’s complicated,” Montpellier deputy chairman Laurent Nicollin told RMC.
“The desire of the club is to keep Remy – he was told and knows this. If a club arrives and offers 100m euros, it will be discussed though.”
