Thomas Lemar

Arsenal are ahead of the other clubs in the race to sign Atletico Madrid playmaker Thomas Lemar according to the specific publication from Daily Mirror.

It was revealed that Arsenal are in the battle to sign the French World Cup-winning midfielder with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and that the Europa League finalists from last season are the front runners to sign him at the expense of Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur.

Thomas Lemar might likely cost at least £60m and it remains to be seen whether the Gunners will want to sign another attack-minded player some months after spending £72m on Ivorian national team player Nicholas Pepe who joined Arsenal from Champions League campaigners Lille who play their football in the French Ligue 1.

Arsenal made Nicholas Pepe their record signing last summer thereby breaking the record of club skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who joined the North Londoners from German side Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.

Gunners new boss Mikel Arteta seems to have his focus on strengthening the defence which has conceded 29 goals in 21 games in the top flight of English football.

Calum Chambers has been the outstanding defender for Arsenal this season but the Gunners will have to cope without him for the next months because of a serious knee problem.
