Arsenal FC are desperate to secure the services of AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar, especially with the imminent departure of star player Alexis Sanchez this winter window. Mesut Ozil would also likely extend his deal if a top player like Lemar joins and Arsenal show ambition. Ozil could also walk for free this summer – a move that would surely wreck the club.
Arsenal almost got Lemar in the summer window after the French Ligue 1 side accepted the Premier League side’s unprecedented £90 million offer. However, the player refused a move to the Emirates when the offer came in on deadline day.
