Arsene Wenger has a knack for doing business late on in the transfer window, which is why despite the inactivity of the Club after the signing of Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac, there is a general belief that he will still bolster his squad.
Arsenal have been long linked with a move for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar and reports have now indicated that the Gunners are locked in talks with the Ligue 1 holders over a move for his signature, according to report.
The attack of Arsenal was blameworthy for their last season’s shambolic outing in the League and Wenger is keen to make his final third more potent. While Lacazette will occupy the frontline of Arsenal’s attack, Wenger wants him to be flanked by Thomas Lemar and contract rebel Alexis Sanchez.
After seeing Bernado Silva, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Benjamin Mendy exited the Club, Monaco are wary of losing another star player. Arsenal have made offers for the 21-year-old but it has been refused by Leonardo Jardim’s side as they are asking for more.
Wenger has already shattered his transfer record to sign Alexandre Lacazette for £52million who arrived from Lyon and the French tactician do not want to spend more on another player.
Lemar was instrumental to Monaco’s conquest of the League last term, as he scored 14 goals in 55 appearances.
He is valued at 24,00 Mill. € according to transfermarkt.
