Thomas Lemar

French international player Thomas Lemar could be the man to add the x-factor to the Arsenal attack according to the publication from the stables of ESPN.

It was revealed that the Gunners are interested in a transfer for the 24-year-old attacker who has found things tough in his second season as an Atletico Madrid player.

Thomas Lemar came close to joining Arsenal in 2017 as a like-for-like replacement for Alexis Sanchez who wanted to leave the Gunners at that point.

Arsenal were unable to wrap up a deal for the French World Cup winner and he went on to stay at French Ligue 1 club AS Monaco for that season.

Alexis Sanchez spent six months more at Arsenal before securing a transfer to Manchester United in a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Thomas Lemar joined Atletico Madrid from AS Monaco for a transfer fee believed to be around £53m in the summer of 2018 and he went on to be a part of the French national team that won the FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

The Frenchman scored three goals and also added three assists in 31 league outings for Atletico Madrid in his first season at the club.

He has not scored or assisted a goal this term.
