Arsenal rejects a chance to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder

Thomas Lemar was the subject of serious interest from Arsenal in 2017, and the Gunners battled Liverpool to land him.

However, both clubs failed to add him to their squad, and he joined Atletico de Madrid in the summer of 2018.

He has remained at the Spanish club, but their style of play means he has struggled to replicate the form he showed at AS Monaco.

Despite being at one of the biggest clubs in Spain, reports continue to link him with a move to Arsenal.

Now he is at a career crossroads and wants to leave Madrid. But it seems he has missed his chance to move to Arsenal.

A report on L’Equipe claims he was offered to the Gunners recently, but they turned down the offer.

He now has to find another club to make his next home or continue his time with Atleti.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Lemar was one of our main transfer targets previously, but he has not developed well, and he is no longer suited to our style of play.

We have added some fine midfielders to our squad already, and it looks better than it was before.

The Frenchman will not make it better, so it is much better to allow him to remain where he is and sign others on our shortlist.

  1. Then we had a certain manager who spent gorgeous sums on losers and unprofessional players like himself. Because that was not his money.Now we have Mikel who’s hiring talent which is exciting on paper and on the pitch. From hiring Mustafi from a relegation 2 way league to hiring Olex from the EPL champs you need a big big man to this, and that man is Mikel Arteta. From cast offs like Ozil and Laca to hiring JG, prima donna wannabe players stay and their agents, stay away from Arsenal as long as Mikel is in the building.

    1. LOL,why are you so bitter towards wenger not even a little respect if not for anything but for the days he brought success to the club.

  2. This ship has long sailed, turning down the great Wenger was a terrible decision on he and his connection part.

    Talented youngsters some time need smart people in their corner to help with development, Lemar and Anthony Martial could be world beaters today if Wenger had his way

    1. He cost a lot of money and there is no guarantee he would have fared any better under Wenger.
