Arsenal could finally get one of Arsene Wenger key summer target Thomas Lemar from Monaco in this transfer window.
The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for the Frenchman and have already seen “two” bids snubbed by the Ligue 1 Champions.
However, BetStars reckon Lemar will end up at the Emirates and he’ll be in an Arsenal shirt soon.
“After weeks of speculation it looks like Arsenal are finally on the verge of signing Monaco starlet Thomas Lemar,” said Ian Marmion, Director of Trading at BetStars.
“The Gunners are now the clear odds-on favourites at 8/13 to complete a deal for the talented Frenchman, who scored 14 goals and provided 17 assists in 55 appearances for Monaco last season.
“Their nearest market rivals Liverpool are now complete outsiders at 13/2.
“The chance to play Premier League football under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger could prove too good an opportunity to turn down for Lemar and we expect to see him in an Arsenal shirt sooner rather than later.”
Reports from France Suggest Arsene Wenger will have to break the bank again this summer after splashing a £52.2m deal for Alexandre Lacazette.
It is believed the Frenchman fancy a move to Arsenal than Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly have joined the race for his signature.
