Arsenal are considering selling a number of players to fund a big-money move to sign Thomas Lemar this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the north London side have already had bids of £30m and £40m turned down by the Ligue 1 club as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options ahead of next season.

The Gunners are thought to be lining up another offer for the 21-year-old France international this summer – and their next move could involve selling off a number of the north London club’s fringe players to fund the move, according to the report.

The same story says that Lemar remains at the top of Wenger’s transfer wish-list this summer as he prepares his squad for the new season.

The article also suggests that the midfielder himself is keen on a move to Arsenal but it remains to be seen if a deal can be concluded.

Arsenal have already broken their transfer record once this summer, after having concluded a deal to sign striker Alexandre Lacazette.

The Gunners have also snapped up left-back Sead Kolasinac from Schalke on a free transfer this summer.
