Tottenham Hotspur have been long linked to Monaco attacker Thomas Lemar, but it seems as though their North London rivals want to snatch him away.
Arsenal are believed to be keen to bolster their options towards the top of the pitch due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Alexis Sanchez’s future at the Emirates.
According to The Guardian, the Gunners tabled a €35m (£34.74m) bid for Lemar, but Monaco have knocked them back.
The good news for Arsenal, though, is that Lemar, who can play on either wing or through the middle, is interested in working under manager Arsene Wenger.
That is obviously bad news for Tottenham fans, who regularly urge the club on Twitter to bring in Lemar.
Even though Arsenal have reportedly made a move, it does not necessarily mean that a deal will be done, suggesting that the likes of Tottenham or any other suitor could swoop in.
Following the latest news involving Lemar, Spurs fans have had their say on social media.

If you want to spend £30m on Lemar when you already have Son in your team then I can only assume you're mental. #COYS
