As reported by The Sun, Arsenal are making progress in their bid to sign Monaco attacker Thomas Lemar this summer. The paper say that the Gunners have even agreed personal terms with the Frenchman, with just a transfer fee to be negotiated with Monaco.
It’s a major development in what would be a massive deal for the club. Lemar is one of the most sought after wingers in European football after a stellar campaign with the French side last season.
Along with the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Falcao, Lemar brought an exciting and effective brand to Ligue 1 and his 14 goals and 14 assists in all competitions point to a player ready to take the English Premier League by storm.
After splashing out on Alexandre Lacazette last week, the 21-year-old would be yet another boost for supporters who are desperate to see the club become competitive in the Premier League title race.
Fans are desperate to see Lemar arrive at the club and took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the situation…
Really hope we see some progress in the Lemar deal in the next few days. #afc

I'm actually so gassed for Lemar man, he's a similar style of player to Cazorla but can also play on the wing and further up the pitch #afc

Really hoping we sign Thomas lemar. Can't help but think it won't happen though, especially seeing as Monaco are wanting €80mil for him #AFC

Imagine Alexis and Ozil confirming they’re staying, and we confirm Lemar too. Would be a great close season for us to build on #AFC

I'd give Monaco whatever they want for Thomas Lemar.
