Arsenal have stepped up their efforts towards securing the services of their main transfer target this summer.

Arsene Wenger has already managed to complete two signings so far but he appears to be intent on adding at least one more new addition to his squad.

AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar is widely believed to be the attacking midfielder on the radar of the Gunners.

And according to reports Arsenal are now preparing to make a new €60 million offer to sign the France international.

Reports on Friday suggested that Barcelona had joined the Gunners in the race for the highly rated 21-year-old.

However, Arsenal are still hopeful of reaching an agreement with Monaco for the purchase of Lemar.
