Arsene Wenger is still confident of securing what would be his third signing of the summer according to reports.
And after a pair of high-profile arrivals before pre-season, Arsenal are now firmly setting their sights on Thomas Lemar.
According to the Daily Mirror, Wenger still ‘believes a deal can be done’ for the 21-year-old to move to the Emirates stadium.
Lemar was in eye-catching form for his side as they managed to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League before clinching the Ligue 1 title.
AS Monaco value the Frenchman at a staggering €90.7 million (£80 million) and Arsenal are believed to have made at least two offers which have been instantly turned down.
BBC journalist David Ornstein claimed on Monday that the Gunners were losing hope of securing Lemar’s signature but Wenger appears to be still working on pushing through the transfer.
