This report is according to a popular Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli, who claims Monaco are just waiting to snap up a replacement before Lemar’s move to the Emirates Stadium is rubber-stamped.
Wenger is desperate to sign the Monaco winger but has seen two offers firmly rejected and the vice-president of the French club Vadim Vasilyev insisted the player wouldn’t be leaving.
Last season, Lemar scored 14 goals and provided 14 assists as Monaco won the French league title and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

When asked whether the deal was 100 per cent agreed, he replied: “Done, but Monaco want to have a substitute first.”
