If the Arsenal transfer rumours are true then Arsene Wenger has this week made another transfer bid to his former club AS Monaco who won the French Ligue 1 title over the huge favourites PSG last season. If the reports are correct then that makes it the third offer the Gunners have put in for the French winger Thomas Lemar so far this summer and hopefully this latest one, said to be around the £45 million mark, will do the trick.
If Monaco turn Arsenal down again as some sources like Metro are saying they will or already have, however, and after selling the likes of Mendy and Silva to Man City for massive money they are well set financially to do so, then it may force Wenger to accept the deal will not be done.
Other sources are more positive about our chances though, with The Sun even reporting that Lemar has agreed personal terms with the Gunners and is hopeful that his current club will not stand in the way of his dream transfer. I have also heard that Lemar is going to be in north London this weekend for the Emirates Cup as he pushes for Monaco to accept Arsenal’s third offer.
But if not, do you think Wenger will try again or will this be his final bid?
