Arsenal launch Thomas Lemar bid of £31million as Monaco star becomes Arsene Wenger’s top transfer target
The playmaker has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates this summer after a fantastic season in Ligue 1.
The Sun says they have launched a new £35million bid for Lemar.
The Gunners are lining up the French star, 21, to replace Alexis Sanchez should he fail to sign a new deal and have made Lemar their number 1 target.
Monaco have rejected Arsenal’s opening £28m bid but are giving serious consideration to their improved offer.
Talks between the two clubs are continuing but no deal has been agreed.
But Arsenal’s move for the left-sided attacking player confirms Wenger is becoming resigned to losing last season’s top-scorer Sanchez.
