Arsenal have been handed a major boost to finally complete the signing of Thomas Lemar, according to Sky Sports.
Monaco are now more willing to sell Arsenal target Thomas Lemar than they were earlier this summer.
The signing of winger Rachid Ghezzal on a free transfer from Lyon adds further to suggestions Lemar is on his way out of the club.
Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth says Arsenal have gone quiet on a potential move for the 21-year-old but thinks a deal is not dead yet.
Sheth said: “We are told today Arsenal are now not in active talks with Monaco over the player. But it should be noted they have not entirely ended their interest.
“Monaco’s stance has changed from their vice president saying he was not for sale two weeks ago, to their coach not guaranteeing he would be at the club come the end of the window.”
