Arsenal remain in talks with Monaco over a deal for Thomas Lemar and a sensational swap involving Alexis Sanchez could be on the cards.

The Gunners have already failed in three bids for the 21-year-old France winger but are still eager to land him.

Transfermarketweb claim a stunning exchange deal between Lemar and Sanchez could be agreed before the end of the summer transfer window.

Negotiations are ongoing and the transfer saga looks set to rumble on right up until deadline day.

Long-term Arsenal target Riyad Mahrez is eager to complete his Leicester exit this month.

The Algerian winger told Sky Sports: “Leicester know my thoughts, but I will continue to give my best for the club as I always have.

“Clearly, it is flattering whenever you get linked with any big clubs, but as it stands, I have not talked to anyone as nobody has had a bid accepted.

“We nearly have a month left of the transfer window so we will see what happens.”

Ex-Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino is unsure whether Arsenal’s new £52m signing Alexandre Lacazette will be a Premier League regular this season.

He told The Times: “He has talent and will score goals.

“I just think unless Arsenal change their style, he won’t shine and may find himself on the bench at times.

“Don’t forget Olivier Giroud is ahead of him in the France pecking order.”
