Arsenal Continuing Talks To Sign £50m-Rated Attacker Ahead Of Liverpool

By on August 7, 2017

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, more on Arsenal’s attempts to sign Thomas Lemar….

Arsenal are still in talks to sign £50m-rated Liverpool target Thomas Lemar despite Monaco insisting the attacker isn’t for sale this summer, according to a report in the Mirror.

Lemar has developed in to one of the most exciting young attackers in Europe after scoring 14 goals and providing a further 17 assists to help Monaco win the Ligue 1 title last season.

The 21-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal this summer with The Sun reporting last month that the Gunners were close to reaching an agreement with Monaco after seeing several offers knocked back.

The Express then claimed that Arsenal were facing stiff competition for Lemar’s signature after Liverpool joined the chase while Barcelona have also been credited with an interest following the sale of Neymar to PSG.

Monaco have insisted that Lemar won’t be sold after losing several of their key players already this summer but that hasn’t stopped Arsenal from continuing their pursuit of the French international.

The Mirror are citing a report from Sky Sports News that claims the Gunners remain in talks with Monaco and are still hoping to sign Lemar before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed he is still looking to further strengthen his squad ahead of another busy season and a new attacker appears to be on the agenda amid on-going doubts over the long-term future of several players.

The likes of Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mesut Ozil all have one year left on their contracts so Wenger needs to plan for the future but the newspaper suggests he’ll need to pay £50m to sign Lemar.

We’ll have to wait and see whether the north Londoners will be prepared to meet that asking price or whether Liverpool will step-up their pursuit of the Frenchman but I think Lemar would be an excellent signing for either club.
