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?
