Arsenal have been warned they will need to significantly raise their bid if they are to stand a chance of landing Valencia shot stopper Vicente Guaita.

The Gunners sent out their chief negotiator Dick Law to Spain to discuss terms yesterday, as they were looking to secure a deal for £17m.

Arsene Wenger’s faith in Wojciech Szczesny was severely tested last term, and failed to convince in their shock 3-1 defeat last weekend against Aston Villa.

Valencia have been looking to extend Guaita’s contract, however some reports emerging on the continent indicate that the 26-year-old is preparing to wave goodbye to some of his team-mates.

But Valencia president Amadeo Salva says Guaita will only leave if his £25m asking price is met.

“Guaita is a world class keeper and Valencia has no need to sell,” Salva told Spanish paper Las Provincas.

“Currently the value is 30 million euros (£25million). At Valencia, what you want is to continue, although his agents have reported that if you are a substitute, you had better find a way out.

“This last point does not sit well with the board. Players can not fall into that temptation to go after every game with this type of attitude.

“If you do not play every week, you have to respect Valencia more.”
