Arsenal are hoping that Alexandre Lacazette will be able to convince Thomas Lemar to sign for Arsenal this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is claiming that the face that Lacazette is good friends with his France team-mate Lemar could work in their favour this summer.

Lacazette became Arsenal’s second major signing of the summer last week when he signed for the Gunners from Lyon in a club-record transfer deal.

Lemar has been widely touted as Arsenal’s next target in the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger looks to continue bolstering his squad this summer.

And the same article in the Daily Star is suggesting that Lemar could be swayed to leave Monaco and sign for Arsenal by his international team-mate.

Arsenal have so far signed Lacazette and Schalke left-back Sead Kolasinac this summer as Wenger aims to guide his side to a Premier League title challenge next season.

The north London side finished fifth in the Premier League table last season but ended the campaign on a high by beating Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup final.
