Thomas Lemar

Arsenal may be forced to spend ‘crazy money’ to land target

Top target

It’s no secret that Thomas Lemar is Arsenal’s top transfer target.

The Monaco winger, who can also play in central midfield, is likely to remain at the Ligue 1 champions, unless the Gunners come up with some serious money.

Monaco will be desperate to keep hold of key players Lemar and Kylian Mbappe as they’ve already lost a number of their title-winning players.

With Tiemoué Bakayoko and Bernardo Silva already gone, and Benjamin Mendy on his way out, the club are insistent that Lemar is not for sale.

Regardless of Sanchez

Supposed Arsenal ITK @AFCAMDEN AKA Dean seems to think that interest in the Frenchman is unrelated to Alexis Sanchez and that signing him is not contingent on the Sanchez leaving the club.

Manager Arsene Wenger once again today told the media that Sanchez will remain at the club.

Wenger played down the Chilean’s recent comments about wanting to play in the Champions League, claiming that Sanchez’s point may have got lost in translation.
