Monaco winger Thomas Lemar has picked Arsenal over their arch-rivals Tottenham, according to former Page 3 model Amy Christophers.
The sports presenter and writer revealed the news on her verified Twitter account under the username ‘@ThatSportsSpice’.
It was previously reported the Gunners and Spurs were set to lock horns over a deal for the 21-year-old.
Lemar’s impressive displays helped his side to clinch the Ligue 1 title and reach the Champions League last season.
Last term, the Frenchman scored and provided 14 assists throughout Monaco’s stand-out campaign.
Lemar is yet to agree a new deal with Monaco but he is still under contract until 2020 – meaning the Ligue 1 champions can demand a huge fee.
Arsenal’s record of developing young French talent in the past could help swing the balance in their favour should Lemar leave.
However, their lack of Champions League football could hinder their chances of landing the 21-year-old.
