Arsenal are set to make a second bid for Kylian Mbappe and are ready to offer Monaco £95m for the teenager, according to the Sunday Express.
Reports in France recently have claimed that the Gunners have already made an £87m bid for the France international which was turned down by Leonardo Jardim’s side.
However, Wenger is refusing to take no for an answer and is willing to go back with an improved offer for the forward who enjoyed a stunning season last time out.
Having signed a new two-year deal at Arsenal, the 67-year-old is aware he needs to strengthen and is believed to be keen to make a signature signing this summer.
Real Madrid are also believed to be interested in Mbappe although the teenager has already admitted that if he is to move, it will be to a club where he will play regularly.
Wenger has already revealed Arsenal were close to a move to Mbappe last year and is clearly optimistic he can tempt the youngster to the Emirates.

Although Arsenal can not offer Mbappe Champions League football next season, he would surely be first choice should he opt to move to north London and the parallels with Thierry Henry are evident.
Still just 18 Mbappe has a huge future ahead of him and while it has been suggested he may chose to remain at Monaco for another season it would be no surprise if he were to leave.
Bernardo Silva has already left the club for Manchester City while Benjamin Mendy, Fabinho and Thomas Lemar are also being linked with exits this summer.
Should Arsenal manage to land Mbappe it would be a huge statement of intent ahead of next season – stay tuned it’s not the last we’ve heard of this one!
