Thomas Lemar has been an Arsenal target all summer, and according to an exclusive by Tribal Football, a deal has been agreed.
Arsenal have had at least one bid confirmed by David Ornstein, with various other sources claiming that this has been followed by another. Whilst Ornstein confirmed recently on Facebook live that we are still interested, there hasn’t been anything further up until this point.
This latest update comes courtesy of the unreliable Ema Giulianelli, who has previously told us that Arsenal had agreed terms with Lukaku, Benzema was having a medical and that we were after Zouma from Chelsea. So without much support from the rest of the publications comprising mainstream media, it’s difficult to put much faith in these latest claims.

If Lemar does join, then Arsenal are getting a talented 21-year-old who has already become a league champion whilst also scoring 14 goals and 17 appearances in all competitions last season.
But with Bakayoko, Bernardo Silva, and possibly Mendy all leaving the club this window already, Arsenal will have difficulty convincing Monaco to sell another of their young talents.
