Arsenal have made a £44.7m bid for Thomas Lemar as they look to make the Frenchman their third signing, according to reports in France.

French newspaper L’Equipe, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the north London side have tabled a third offer for the 21-year-old attacker as they look to get a deal over the line.

The same story claims that the bid is worth around £44.7m as the Gunners look to finally land the man they have been linked with heavily in recent weeks.

Lemar, who scored 14 goals and provided 17 assists in all competitions last season, has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks.

Arsene Wenger is thought to be keen to bolster his attacking options at The Emirates as the uncertainty about Alexis Sanchez’s future continues.

The north London side have already signed two players this summer but the Gunners are thought to be on the lookout for more reinforcements this summer.

Arsenal have tied up deals for left-back Sead Kolasinac and striker Alexandre Lacazette so far this summer.
