Top 21-year-old won’t force Arsenal transfer move – report
AS Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar won't force through a move to Arsenal this summer, according to reports
Thomas Lemar won’t force a move to Arsenal in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the English media.
Goal.com is reporting that the Gunners are facing a battle to secure the 21-year-old’s signature in the 2017 summer transfer window.
The same article states that the attacking midfielder is flattered to be linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
However, crucially Lemar has no intention of holding AS Monaco to ransom about a move to the FA Cup winners.
According to the story on the English website, Arsenal failed with a £30.7m offer for the playmaker earlier this week as Arsene Wenger looks to utilise his connections at the Ligue 1 champions.
The Gunners boss has only signed one player in the summer transfer window so far after Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac agreed a move to Arsenal from Bundesliga giants Schalke 04.
Lemar scored eight times and made nine assists in Ligue 1 last term to help Monaco beat Paris Saint-Germain to the French top-flight title.
Arsenal, on the other hand, finished in fifth place in the Premier League table.
