BBC’s Ornstein reveals the £80m star Arsenal are now working on signing

BBC journalist David Ornstein has revealed that Arsene Wenger is still working on bringing in another attacking option this summer.

The Gunners welcomed the likes of Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette before the beginning of preseason on Thursday.

However, Wenger has hinted that he might not end his transfer business there as the new campaign approaches.

AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates stadium over the past couple of months.

And according to reliable BBC journalist David Ornstein, the 21-year-old is indeed being pursued by the Gunners.

“The club are still interested in signing Thomas Lemar, the Monaco winger,” he said.

“It may be dependent on who else leaves Monaco with Bakayoko coming in at Chelsea and Mendy possibly at Manchester City but Arsenal are still in the hunt for Thomas Lemar.”

The Ligue 1 champions, who have already rejected two offers from Arsenal for Lemar, are believed to be valuing the midfielder at £80 million.
