Thomas Lemar

Monaco star, Thomas Lemar is keen on a move to Arsenal and the winger is said to be pushing very hard to have the switch to the Emirates to start a new phase under Arsene Wenger.

It is been reported that the 21-year-old winger is ready for a bust-up with Monaco if they play hardball over his dream move.

The winger is thought to have agreed to personal terms with the Gunners but the Daily Star still claims the French international is afraid Monaco might actually block his path to the Premier League.

Clubs across Europe are on a raid of Monaco and the French champions have already lost Bernardo Silva to Manchester City and Tiemoue Bakayoko to Chelsea.

City also look set to land defender Benjamin Mendy while striker Kylian Mbappe could be on his way to Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain.

So Monaco bosses are keen to halt outgoing transfers before their squad is further depleted by the money bags.

This development is making life difficult for Lemar, who will simply demand he be sold to Arsenal.

Lemar was a key figure in the club’s title success.

He made 34 appearances last season and was always on the Gunners’ radar.
