Lemar 2

Monaco have told Arsenal that they will have to break their transfer record again this summer, should they wish to sign Thomas Lemar, according to the Mirror.

The Ligue 1 champions have lost a couple of
players this summer after an impressive season that saw them win the league and reach the semi-final of the Champions League.

Monaco are now demanding £80million for
Lemar, in a bid to scare off Arsenal, who have
made him their number one target this summer.

If Arsene Wenger sanctions a move at that
price, Lemar will become the Gunners' most
expensive player ever.

Arsenal paid £42.5m for Mesut Ozil in 2013,
then £52m for Alexandre Lacazette earlier
this month.

Now they could have to go through that new
barrier to get Lemar, who is understood to be
keen to move to the Emirates.
