Arsenal Prepared To Increase Bid For Monaco Star Thomas Lemar
Reports are out claiming that Arsenal are ready to go higher to land AS Monaco winger Thomas Lemar.
The Sun reported that they have launched a new £35million bid for Lemar.
The Gunners are lining up the French star, 21, to replace Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates next season.
And boss Arsene Wenger is also closing in on a club record £57m move for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.
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.
