Arsenal in talks trying to thrash out deal to sign £50m attacker

By on August 17, 2017

According to Sky Sports via the Mirror, Arsenal remain in talks with Monaco and are trying to thrash out a deal to sign £50m-rated attacker Thomas Lemar.

Arsene Wenger is on the look out for more signings and Arsenal have been strongly linked with Lemar all summer but we’ve struggled to agree terms with Monaco after they rejected at least two formal offers.

The French champions are desperate to keep hold of the remainder of their title-winning squad after seeing a number of key players depart this summer.

The speculation linking Lemar with Arsenal has died down in recent weeks after Monaco insisted he wouldn’t be sold, however, the Mirror are citing a report from Sky Sports that says we remain in negotiations with the French outfit.

The newspaper says Monaco are demanding around £50m for the 21-year-old’s signature and Arsenal still hope to get a deal wrapped-up before the transfer window closes later this month.

Monaco completed the signing of winger Rachid Ghezzal last week and he could be viewed as a replacement for Lemar so hopefully they are just holding out for the best price and will eventually agree a deal with Arsenal.

Lemar has forged a reputation as one of the most exciting young attackers in Europe after providing 14 goals and 17 assists last season so I’d love to see him come to the Emirates over the next two weeks.

It looks like we’re going to lose Alexis Sanchez either this summer or in 12 months time so we need to be prepared for his departure and Lemar would be a superb long-term replacement for the Chilean superstar.

    This Lemar transfer has become a boring issue. I still don’t get it why Wenger can’t look elsewhere. Mahrez has long been available and now Draxler is but AW will still cling to money like it’s his own. Wenger is too old he cannot compete against young managers like Guardiola, Conte, Mourinho, Pochettino, Klopp, Koeman, Zidane etc. He has to go coz with him we will never win the Premiership again, even if we bring Ronaldo, Messi, Van Dijk, Pogba & Bale

    I dearly wander why arsenal deals are imminent, wenger last time he told us Sanchez isnot for sale but now I do wander why he came out with adifferent statement,so if he can’t sign the replacement early,arsenal will never complete at the higher levels with other European clubs,let wenger leave the club

    I am sure he never sign additional player this summer, b/c he never think out of money.

    We need new owner on the Cards. We Need new Management team. And we need good players get rid of the vulters and replace them with players who have pride in the Football shirts they wear. And not their bank accounts.

      JOHN the management should have pride for the club by showing ambition then the players can follow suit

    Lamer is the player Wenger need, I think the negotiations are still going on, as you know Wenger does not say things before the finalization of the deal. So lets wait and see what will happen.

    One of the three Lemar,Draxler and Mahrez would be a suitable signing for Arsenal. If we lose Sanchez, then let’s buy two of the three ,possibly Lemar and Draxler.
