Thomas Lemar

Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar has again been linked with a move to Premier League giants Arsenal after failing to live up to his price tag in the Spanish La Liga.

According to the various media reports on the European continent, Thomas Lemar is a target for the Gunners as well as other European sides like Tottenham Hotspur and French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

The French World Cup winner has neither scored or assisted any goal in the Spanish La Liga this season despite making 15 appearances.

Thomas Lemar also had no goal output in six group stage games in the Champions League last year.

Atletico Madrid signed him from AS Monaco at the start of the last campaign in a transfer said to be worth around £51.5m.

He came close to signing for the Gunners just months before his Atletico Madrid transfer.

Lemar almost joined Arsenal in the summer of 2017 but the transfer didn’t go through as AS Monaco were unable to sign a replacement in time before that summer’s transfer window ended.

The French winger was seen as a like-for-like signing to replace Alexis Sanchez that summer after Manchester City made a bid to sign the Chilean international.

Possible Arsenal XI with Lemar: Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, David Luiz, Pablo Mari, Sead Kolasinac; Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil, Thomas Lemar, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Gabriel Martinelli.
