“He’s a player that we have looked at, but the rest is only speculation.”
The Gunners have already made two additions to the team Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette and now Wenger has turned his attention to the Monaco star.
Lemar had an impressive season for the French side, helped them win Ligue 1, reach the Champions League semi-finals and make his debut for the France national team.
Wenger also confirmed he is looking at bringing in more signings this summer transfer window, He said: “I am open to get some more signings, but it is not easy to find the players who can strengthen our squad, because we have top-quality players.
“There are two ways to improve always: analyse what we did well last season and what we did not so well and improve that, and then you can bring new players in.
“But at the moment, because we are in pre-season, it is very important for us to analyse well what happened last season and where we can improve. We have top quality in our squad, and at the moment I focus on that.”
