Three teams had offers for Arsenal target rejected, report claims

AS is claiming that Atletico Madrid has rejected three offers for Thomas Lemar as they get prepared to offer him more chances to play for them again this season.

The long-term Arsenal target has been struggling since he moved to Spain in 2018 and the club wanted to sell him in the last transfer window.

They signed him for 70 million euros from AS Monaco and the report claims that they had been hoping to recoup a significant part of that fee.

However, Lemar, who rejected a move to FC Porto because he wanted to move to England, has now remained at the club.

The report names Bayern Munich and Wolves as other teams who tried to sign him before the transfer window closed.

Mikel Arteta has proven to be a very fine man-manager so far after helping the likes of David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi to return to form.

The Spaniard might be able to get Lemar back to form as it is believed that he is struggling because he is playing under a very defensive-minded Diego Simeone. 

Arsenal is still interested in him, but it isn’t clear if they will try to sign him anytime soon.

    I dont get this obsession with Lemar. He was a target two years ago.

    Unless there is a link to a quote from Arteta or Edu indicating recent interest, why do we keep having Lemar sightings on JA rather than the 2354 other players we’ve been linked to in the last two years?

    What is this to do with Arsenal ? You might just as easily write an article about Benzema!

    I cannot be coerced to believe that Arteta is a fine man-manager, because he is not. He is failing to manage players like Gouendouzi and Maitland-Niles. The only type of management that he can do is try to push them through the exit. He’s failing to guide them. ‘He helped Luiz and Mustafi to return to form?’ I dont see any fine display from aforementioned players. Please dont fool us
