Arsenal news: Arsene Wenger makes huge decision on Thomas Lemar transfer | Football | Sport

Arsene Wenger tried to land the Monaco star on deadline day during the summer window, but they left themselves too little time to clinch a transfer.

At the time, Lemar was lined up as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who appeared to be Manchester City bound, but the Gunners pulled out of a swap.

With Sanchez and his team-mate Mesut Ozil likely to leave Arsenal come the summer, a list of targets has been drawn up.

Among them is Lyon star Nabil Fekir, with the north London outfit supposedly preparing a £60million offer.

Liverpool and Barcelona meanwhile, have been coveting Lemur as they seek to bolster their respective squads.

And according to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal think Monaco’s growing demands are making a deal ‘impossible’.

The report adds Monaco want to sell, but the Gunners are prepared to abandon their interest.

When asked about the possibility of signing Lemar earlier this month, Wenger said: “No. At the moment, I have a big squad. 

“The problem for me is to keep everyone together until the end of the season.

“Do we go on the transfer market in January? I don’t know yet.”
