The Arsenal supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are in an ecstatic mood after the landlord revealed the latest transfer line coming in from the Sun.
The publication reports that Arsenal are set to finally seal a deal for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar for £45 million, and this news has come as a welcome surprise to our resident Gunners by the bar.
The 21-year-old has been consistently linked with a switch to the Emirates Stadium this summer, with the north London outfit already having a bid rejected for the exciting French talent.
Our landlord thinks Wenger simply needs to secure a deal for the Frenchman no matter what the cost, and feels his attacking attributes and qualities make him a seamless fit for Arsenal.
Ian, a hardcore Arsenal fan by the jukebox here in the Tavern, feels that the reported £45m fee is fair in today’s current climate, as Lemar is still so young, and has time to develop and mature as a footballer.
Lemar would become Arsenal’s third signing of the summer, following the additions of Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette.
As our landlord concludes, Lemar’s versatility is what makes him such an astute addition – his ability to play on either wing will be incredibly useful to Wenger throughout the season.
Unsure what Lemar’s playing style is like? Check out this video of the Monaco star in action:
