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.

Transfer Update: Monaco Finally Agree To Sell Thomas Lemar

Follow Footballbible on all social media platform to get up to date football related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea may get the chance to sign Thomas Lemar late before the transfer window closes, according to reports.

The Gunners have already had three bids rejected for the playmaker but could now get a chance to sign him in the next few days.

We know Monaco have been reluctant to let him leave but reports in France claim all that could change as the Ligue 1 champions could lose three more of their title winning squad in the few days left in the transfer window.

Kylian Mbappe and Fabinho are reportedly closing in on a move to PSG and Le 10 Sport claim Lemar could follow the duo through the exit door.

According to the report via the Metro, Monaco are now considering letting Lemar leave.

This will come as a big boost to Arsenal who have been chasing the midfielder all summer.

Wenger recently hinted he would be waiting around the corner, should an exceptional player becomes available before the window closes and he will definitely be boosted by this report.

However, we may not find it any easier even if Monaco now decides to sell. Barcelona and Manchester United were linked with him recently and they could join the race to sign him once he becomes available. Hopefully, our long standing interest should put us in an advantageous position for his signature.

Monaco to enter race for CR7

Fascinating quotes

Monaco to enter race for CR7

According to the British newspaper the independent newly promoted French Ligue 1 side Monaco are on the verge of making a world-record £85 million offer for Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo has two years remaining on his contract with Madrid, and has so far refused to sign a new contract at the Santiago Bernabeu where has been for the past four seasons after completing what was then a world record move from current Premier League champions Manchester United.
In fact before today’s news regarding Monaco it was thought that it would be his old club Manchester United that he would return to with the Red Devils reportedly putting together a £65 million deal with Nike to bring the fans favourite back to Old Trafford.
This all to a big turn last night following the news that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said he is ready to offer Ronaldo a salary of £125 million over five years.
Perez when speaking to the press in Spain said: ‘I would bet Cristiano will retire at Real Madrid because it’s the natural thing,’ he told Marca.
‘We will negotiate the new contract before the start of La Liga and I am convinced that everything will come out well.
‘To renew Cristiano before the start of the season is my desire and my ambition. We will do everything possible to make it happen.’
This of course was before all talk of an offer by Monaco for the 28-year-old after having already spent £110 million this summer on Atletico’s Radamel Falcao and Porto’s James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho.
Owned by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev money is not a problem for the principality football team, and the tax advantages never mind being able to live on the French Riviera would be very appealing to almost any footballer.
Even if Monaco decided to offer Ronaldo £5 million a year less than Los Blanco’s it would still work out to be £330,000 per week as Monaco residents pay no tax on their earnings which would make Ronaldo the highest paid footballer in the world.
We will have to wait and see what happens, but one thing is for sure Monaco are not finished spending yet.
