Arsenal can sign Thomas Lemar before the transfer window closes if they stump up with a bid close to £60m, according to football expert Duncan Castles.
The Gunners had three bids rejected for the playmaker earlier in the transfer window but could now get a chance to sign him in the next few days.
We know Monaco have been reluctant to let Lemar leave but the playmaker now appears to be pushing for a move to the Premier League.
Reports in France claim the Ligue 1 champions could lose three more players from their title winning squad in the few days left in the transfer window.
Kylian Mbappe and Fabinho are closing in on a move to PSG and Lemar could be allowed to leave also for the right price.
According to Castles via the Daily Cannon, Lemar could be allowed to leave Monaco for around £60m
“I had a chat with a Monaco contact last night, asking him where things stood. He said the Lemar deal is very much still on the table as far as they’re concerned.
“It is a possibility he leaves, if the transfer fee they are looking for of £60m is met.”
This will come as a big boost to Arsenal who have been chasing the midfielder all summer.
Wenger recently hinted that a deal for the Monaco man is dead but if Castles claim is true, the boss will definitely try to sign the player once more.
However, it isn’t still going to be an easy deal to complete because Manchester United and Liverpool have now joined the race to sign Lemar.
