Thomas Lemar & Arsenal

What can Gooners deduct from Monaco star Thomas Lemar posing for a couple of pictures with an Arsenal fan?

Probably nothing, but the images, which are swirling around social media, are getting some Arsenal fans excited.

Of course, Lemar has been linked with a possible move from Monaco to the Emirates Stadium throughout the summer.

What’s the story?

The latest pictures of Lemar were taken during Monaco’s pre-season training camp in Switzerland.

The pictures were posted on Twitter by an Arsenal fan called @AVHD_Official, who seemed intent on stirring the pot claiming Lemar “seemed really happy taking photos with me. Definitely Arsenal bound!”

What’s the reality?

On Monday, Arsenal fans received bad news on the Lemar front.

That’s after a fresh update from the BBC’s David Ornstein, who is widely considered to be the gold standard of reporting when it comes to updates out of the Emirates Staduim.

He’s announced that “Arsenal (are) growing less optimistic of signing Lemar”.

The reason? Because “other Monaco exits reduce chances”.

It’s worth noting that, according to recent reports, the France left winger has agreed personal terms with Arsenal but the Gunners are struggling to prise him away from Monaco.

The Gunners have made a 45 million pound bid for Lemar, which, according to GFFN, was completely ignored by Monaco as it was deemed a waste of time.
