North London giants, Arsenal are reportedly stepping up the pursuit of France international, Thomas Lemar who currently plies his trade for Ligue 1 giants, Monaco. The diminutive forward was reportedly close to a move to The Emirates stadium in the summer, only for the deal to collapse on the deadline day.
However, Arsenal are still very much interested in his services as we hope he can replace the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil who look like leaving the club in the nearest future. The player has thrown Twitter into meltdown after liking a post an Instagram user put up on the social media platform.
Despite news emanating last week that Premier League rivals, Chelsea and Liverpool are also interested in signing the player, Lemar liked a post that showed a photo of him with the caption, “Welcome to Arsenal”. This can only mean that the player is interested in a move to Arsenal and the Gunners board will do well now to make a massive approach for him rather than see him play for any of our bitter rivals. Here’s how Lemar will look in an Arsenal jersey if he makes the big-money move.
Lemar is one of the headline signings the new Arsenal hierarchy of football want to make that will signal a huge statement of intent. Raul Sanllehi formerly of Barcelona was recently appointed as sporting director as the club looks to compete with other clubs for the major trophies.
Lemar is one of Europe’s most highly rated youngsters, who dazzled for principality club, Monaco on their way to winning Ligue 1 and reaching the Champions League semifinals last term.
Lemar is a classy attacking midfielder that can play on the left of an attacking midfield triumvirate or as a central midfielder. He is known for his passing, creativity and vision and will add pace, movement and trickery of what sometimes look like a pedestrian attack for the Gunners.
