Arsenal have been handed a boost in their long-running pursuit of Thomas Lemar with Bayern Munich pulling out of the race to land him.
The Gunners tried to sign the Monaco winger last summer and even tabled a bid in excess of £90m for him on deadline day.
Bayern were also keen but refused to match his mammoth asking price.
German outlet Kicker now say the Bavarians have ended their interest in the France international, handing Arsenal a welcome boost.
