Arsenal step up interest in signing 21-year-old midfielder – report
Arsenal are set to go all out to try and sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco this summer, say reports
Arsenal are set to “go all out” to try and sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is claiming that the north London side are keen to bring Lemar to The Emirates this summer as Arsene Wenger looks to kick off his spending spree.
Lemar has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks and it would seem that Wenger remains intent on trying to bring him to The Emirates.
However, the same report says that the signing of the £30m-rated Lemar from Monaco this summer would put Theo Walcott’s Arsenal career “in jeopardy”.
The story also says that Arsenal are having to be realistic in their hopes of trying to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon this summer.
The article claims that the 26-year-old striker has his heart set on a move to Atletico Madrid to link up with his France team-mate Antoine Griezmann.
Arsenal have been linked with a host of players this summer, but the Gunners have so far only concluded a deal to sign left-back Sead Kolasinac from Schalke.
