Celebrity News: The 21-year-old midfielder is just one step away from wearing the ‘Gunner’ shirt next season after making his mark in Ligue 1 and Champions League.
Arsenal is close to taking on Monaco star Thomas Lemar. As Goal has learned, the 21-year-old midfielder is at the top of Arsene Wenger’s wish list.
The coach was recently discovered in Nice alongside the manager ‘Gunner’ Ivan Gazidis, where both have spent what goes on holiday working to try to strengthen the club. This includes Monaco star Kylian Mbappé and Olympique Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.
Wenger continues with the hope that the arrival of Lemar helps Mbappé to make the decision to sign for the Arsenal. As Goal has learned, the French coach has not given up signing the most coveted player in the summer market.
Lemar would become the second signing of the Emirates Stadium after the addition of left-back Sead Kolasinac and will fight for a place in the eleventh with Alex Iwobi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The “Gunners” do not give up and try to seduce the player with a competitive team.
Alexis Sanchez still does not define his future. The player handles several offers from big clubs in Europe but has not yet decided where to continue his career. Meanwhile, Arsenal does not give up on their intention to retain him and so he tries to seduce him with a competitive team that will ensure him to win titles.
In that context, the English press said that the “Gunners” will seek to form a powerful pair with Sanchez and the young striker of Monaco, Kylian Mbappe.
“Keep Alexis Sanchez and sign Kylian Mbappe … the transfer business that Arsenal will look to complete this summer,” said the British media Evening Standard.
The 28-year-old has been difficult to handle but in 51 games last season he was present in 45 goals. However, more than the statistics, Sanchez is an important figure and his departure would be a setback for Arsenal, as they face their first season in the Europa League in two decades, “he added.
The second point of importance is to retain Mesut Özil but the ‘Gunners’ also need – at least – two big signings to fight for the title. Therefore, Kylian Mbappe, Alexandre Lacazette, and Thomas Lemar are of great interest.
