$104million Star Ready to Sign for Arsenal – This Could Facilitate Move

Arsenal have so far completed two key signings in the summer transfer window by luring the likes of Kolasinac and Lacazette.

Alexis Sanchez is still at the Emirates but the Gunners will need to sign a replacement if he departs and in such a scenario, Thomas Lemar has been targeted for quite some time.

As reported yesterday by L’Equipe, the 21-year-old Les Bleus attacker wants to sign for Arsenal and the move could be facilitated by the fact that Monaco are looking for a replacement in the form of  Rachid Ghezzal.

The Ligue 1 champions have already lost star players like Mendy, Silva and Bakayoko in the summer transfer window and losing Lemar would be another huge blow.

Few days back, we covered a report (via Le10Sport) claiming that Liverpool are also interested in signing the ($104million) £80million rated star (via Mail and Mirror)  if Coutinho departs the Anfield club for Barcelona.

The former Caen player was in top class form for the French side in the last campaign. He featured in 34 league games and directly contributed in 20 goals (9 goals and 11 assists) as Monaco won the title.

Alexis Sanchez was easily Arsenal’s best player in the last campaign and replacing him is not going to be easy. In your opinion, is Lemar good enough to replace the Chilean international?

    some teams are spending mulitymilion fo a player that they want, psg get neymar with one or two offer, bc they know how to spent, but ours arsen stayed on one player for two month, he add one milion when the offer is rejected. In my opinion, i would like to ask the transfer time to extend all the year,others wise with arsen wenger we can’t get players. He is abosolutly rabishi, he doesn’t know how the fans are happy, he still sticks with his old philosophy. Before two year we don’t have defencive player’s, and in the next year he left the attack for oliver g. He always want a void in one or two places. Bc if he is unable to win trophy, people will talk about the absence of player in that space not about him..we need defencive player, we need to replace santi, we need one left foot player. Oh!! arsen W. Place u need injection in your blood.otherwise you will not provide any change in arsenal.

      @Gyirga If anyone were to look beyond your spelling mistakes and all, they would think Arsene Wenger was out to ruin Arsenal with his ”philosophy”. I think it’s ridiculous to compare PSG’s acquisition of Neymar to Arsenal transfer strategy. Do you suggest we splash out #200 million on every player deemed required by the club. At this rated, players will hit the #1 billion mark in 3 years. Money spent does not equate the output, it certainly makes a difference, but guarantees nothing. It that was the case, the highest spending will always win. What manager in his right mind would want a void in any area? Do a bit more research on Arsenal’s purchases in the last 4 years, and don’t believe all you read in the media. I may not like all of Wenger’s decisions but I have no doubt he’s doing the best he can under the circumstances. Give him #300 million and he’ll make use of it. Do you expect him to pull #150 million outta his arse? Things don’t work that way in the real world. In all this criticism, have you asked yourself if it isn’t because it’s Wenger? What purchases have Tottenham made so far? Do you know for a fact that Arsenal just made #1 million increments on bids for Lemar? Get your stories straight first before venting.
