Manchester City are ready to challenge Arsenal for Monaco star Thomas Lemar this summer window.
Lemar, 22, has scored just three times in 27 appearances for Monaco this season having been chased by Arsenal in the summer.
The Gunners, as well as Liverpool – armed with money from the sale of Philippe Coutinho – are expected to return for French international Lemar in the close season.
The Telegraph, though, are reporting that the League leaders Man City also fancy bringing him to England – and to the Etihad.
Having lost David Silva, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane to injury at the start of the year, Pep Guardiola tried to bring Riyad Mahrez to the Citizens in the January transfer window. Parent club Leicester City, though, stood by their valuation of the Algerian and he remained at the King Power Stadium.
Guardiola spent big on defender Aymeric Laporte in January, and is expected to make a further signing or two in the summer window.
Arsene Wenger is also looking for a possible replacement for Theo Walcott who completed a move to Everton last summer.
