Monaco star is interested in Arsenal transfer despite Europa League qualification
AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar is reportedly keen on a move to the Emirates stadium despite the fact that Arsenal will not participate in the Champions League next term.
Arsene Wenger is believed to be keeping tabs on a host of midfielders who could potentially bolster his squad heading into the 2017/18 season.
Thomas Lemar has been one of the names reported to be on the wishlist of the Arsenal manager along with Kylian Mbappe of course.
And according to a rumours from Thursday, the 21-year-old is indeed interested in a move to north London this summer.
Lemar was in inspiring form for Monaco last season, helping the club reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the first time since 2004.
The uncertain future of Mesut Ozil means Wenger is likely to pursue the addition of new midfielder this summer.
Lemar’s contract with AS Monaco will expire in 2020 and the French club are expected to demand a premium transfer fee to allow his departure.
