ARSENAL are reportedly considering a third bid for Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
Sky Sports claim the Gunners are set to table an £18million deal that would include add-ons to take the offer up to £25m.
Arsenal were previously linked with West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone but are now believed to have made Ramsdale their top target.
The Blades have reportedly rejected two previous offers from the Premier League club for the England Euro 2020 squad member.

Emirates boss Mikel Arteta has a major goalkeeper issue this summer with No1 Leno linked with returning to Germany.
Brighton’s Mat Ryan spent the second half of last season on loan in North London but sealed a move to LaLiga side Real Sociedad this summer.
And even if Leno does stay, the Spaniard is expecting Ramsdale to compete to be first-choice.
The star, although still awaiting his first cap, was England's third-choice goalkeeper for Euro 2020 after Dean Henderson withdrew through injury.
Ramsdale had suffered a tough season with Sheff Utd following their relegation from the Premier League.
He returned to his old club last summer in a £20m move from Bournemouth – again as a replacement for Red Devils stopper Henderson.
Yet Arsenal were recently slammed by Jamie O'Hara for their pursuit of Ramsdale.
Discussing Arsenal's transfer business on talkSPORT, O'Hara said: "This literally sums Arsenal up doesn’t it. It sums them up business wise.
"They got rid of Martinez, who’s a brilliant keeper for what, £20million or something? Let him go, a snip, was one of the best keepers last season.
"And now they’re gonna go and sign someone from a relegated team for £30million, what are they doing?
"Who is doing their business there? Seriously. What are they doing? They are a mess."
