English Premier League outfit Arsenal have been given a green light by a Telegraph report which claims that they could still sign Atletico Madrid star Thomas Lemar on Monday.

No more doubts that Thomas Lemar has fallen down the pecking order at Atletico Madrid and will not be favoured for selection, the option of him leaving has been made open by the club.

The North London outfit were linked with a move for the winger before he opted for Atletico Madrid but has not been able to deliver his potential. He now has another opportunity to join the Gunners and impress again.

The Telegraph claims Atletico Madrid are willing to let the player join Arsenal on loan but that is only subject to Arsenal’s current interest in the player, especially with a new system under Mikel Arteta.

The North London outfit have been in Madrid for discussions for the signature of Ghanaian international midfielder Thomas Partey but were unable to activate his release clause of £45 million this summer window.

This could be the chance to strike another deal with the Spanish La Liga outfit after months of negotiation for the Ghanaian midfielder after Mikel Arteta claims they are still active in the market.
