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.

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