Arsenal submit improved €45m bid for Thomas Lemar

More than just a penalty-box striker, the Frenchman would bring a degree of fluidity and variety to Arsenal's attack.

Having been released from his contract at Juventus early, the former Barcelona right-back's reunion with Pep Guardiola has been one of the worst-kept secrets in football.

Struggled for form towards the end of last season but still one of the best full-backs in the country. A bit like Romelu Lukaku until Thursday, to be fair.

After impressing with his maturity and composure in a back-three last season, there's every chance Arsene Wenger could place his faith in the youngster once again for the new campaign.

The Leicester manager, however, does admit he was disappointed that Mahrez went public with his desire to leave the club, in the form of a statement issued to the press in May.

Arsenal insist they will not sell Alexis Sanchez or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to a title rival.

The French international has told the French outfit he wants to make the switch to the Premier League this summer. "Alex is a player who is sufficiently intelligent to adapt to that, Olivier Giroud too".

And despite numerous names being tossed around, there have been only two in the race: Thomas Lemar and Riyad Mahrez.

The Gunners have already seen a bid of €34 million be binned by the Ligue 1 champions, but now want to put €45m on the table for the Manchester City target.

The Sky Sports News journalist provided Arsenal fans with an update on their pursuit of the Monaco star.

The chances of the player coming to Everton are currently 7/10. Bernardo Silva has already left for Manchester City while Benjamin Mendy, Fabinho, Kylian Mbappe and Tiemoue Bakayoko are all subjects of huge interest from other clubs.
