Arsenal are poised to make a fresh bid to try and sign Thomas Lemar next year – but their offer will be less than the £90m they tabled in August, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the north London side are ready to make a fresh move to try and bring the 22-year-old to The Emirates after having failed to land him last summer.

However, the same story says that the Gunners will not be willing to match the £90m offer they made for Lemar towards the end of the summer window.

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move to sign Lemar in the summer but a transfer failed to materialise as Monaco opted to keep hold of the France international.

Lemar has struggled to recapture his sparkling form from last season this time around, but according to the same story, the player himself is said to now be open to a move to The Emirates.

Arsenal are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks as the January transfer window draws nearer.

And the speculation surrounding the futures of both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil is likely to heighten, with neither player having yet committed their futures to the club.
