Things might just get very interesting over the next couple of days!
After signing Kolasinac and Lacazette in the summer, Arsene Wenger is plotting to further improve his squad over the summer.
Often known for his frugal transfer dealings, the Arsenal boss is now looking to break the club’s transfer record for the second time as he looks to bring in Thomas Lemar to the Emirates.
The French winger was one of the stars of the Monaco team that were the surprise package in the Champions League last season.
The 21 year old, along with Silva were the other stars complementing the exceptional Mbappe, as the young French side won the French league displaying an exciting brand of football.
Arsene Wenger is very keen on adding Lemar to his side, as he believes in the potential that the young Frenchman possesses. Many people also claim that Lemar wants to to work with Wenger, something that the Arsenal boss has been informed of.
Arsenal have already submitted two bids to Monaco, both of which have been turned down by the club. But Arsenal are preparing a final 40 million pounds bid with another 15 million in add ons.
Wenger feels that this should be enough for Monaco, who have been against the idea of selling Lemar.
But if Lemar is truly desperate to join Arsenal, then surely he would force a deal through wouldn’t he? At least that is what Wenger must be thinking.
With Ozil ready to sign a new deal and Sanchez all but staying for this season, the addition of Lemar could suddenly transform Arsenal into one of the fearsome attacking units in the country.
Could Arsenal fans really see Ozil and Lemar supplying the ammunition for Sanchez and Lacazette?
