It is being reported that Arsene Wenger has once again missed out on great pair of players.
- Wenger agreed deal to sign N’Golo Kante and Thomas Lemar for just £12.6m but changed his mind
- Lemar, still only 21, is terrorised Ligue 1 and is now a main Wenger target
- Arsenal have since had a number of significant bids turned down for Lemar
Same story, two different main characters, and this time we’re talking about N’Golo Kante and Thomas Lemar.
French expert, Gilles Favard, says that Arsene Wenger was presented with the opportunity to sign the duo two years ago when they both played for a Ligue 1 side, Caen, but decided to look elsewhere after agreeing a deal.
Reported fee for both players was only £12.6m and today it presents unimaginable bargain even if it were to be for only one of the players mentioned.
Favard said, “We all know the story.
“Two years ago he [Wenger] had a deal for Thomas Lemar and N’Golo Kante for €15m [£12.6m].”
