Arsenal have been slammed by the Sunday Time’s top football journalist Duncan Castles, claiming they embarrassed themselves on deadline day to go with a disastrous transfer window. The Gunners brought in only two players this summer in Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac, whilst overseeing a number of exits, and after finishing outside the Champions League spots last term, you would have expected much more improvements.
Manchester United are claimed to be ready to launch a bid to sign Thomas Lemar this winter, forcing Arsenal’s hand.
The Gunners failed with a £92 Million move to bring the French international to the Emirates on deadline day, and manager Arsene Wenger has already admitted that he will return for him in the future.
Monaco chief Vadim Vasilyev has claimed that Thomas Lemar did want to leave the club for Arsenal or Liverpool, before he convinced him to stay.
Les Rouges et Blancs went on a selling spree this summer, after a thoroughly impressive season in which they dominated the French division, as well as reaching the semi-final of the Champions League competition.
Arsenal have apparently lodged a British record bid to bring Thomas Lemar to the Emirates.
The Monaco youngster emerged as one of the top talents in Europe last season, and has been high on Arsene Wenger’s wishlist all summer.
Monaco are claimed to be eyeing a move to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal this summer, While Arsenal are chasing their forward Thomas Lemar also.
Rumour has it that the French champions are looking to test the waters with a £45 Million bid for the Chilean, but the likelihood is that any deal for Alexis would be part of the Lemar move.
Arsenal have supposedly been offered Juan Cuadrado for a fee of £26.8 Million, while our bids to sign both Thomas Lemar and Riyad Mahrez have both taken blows.
The Gunners have been pursuing a deal to bring Monaco’s Lemar to London, but have so far failed to tempt the French champions to accept one of three supposed offers.
Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery has told the press that he wishes to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer, and that could actually work out to Arsenal’s advantage.
The Paris-based manager has told the press directly that Mbappe should come to play for him, saying: ‘With all respect to Monaco, he should come to Paris, he has family here. His parents live here, he went to an academy here.’
Arsenal target Kylina Mbappe has become one of the hottest properties in world football this season and his most recent comments assure me that he will be at the top of the game for years to come.
