Long-term Arsenal target Thomas Lemar could finally be on the move but not to the Emirate Stadium.
But in what will be a major disappointment to Arsenal fans, it appears that the France winger could be heading for Barcelona after a dramatic late twist ahead of transfer deadline day.
The Gunners have had three bids knocked back for Lemar this summer and last week Arsene Wenger admitted that his chances of landing the attacker looked over as Monaco had ‘shut the door’ on his departure.
According to SPORT, the Catalan giants have ‘accelerated talks in the last few hours’ in a bid to strike a deal with Monaco for their exciting young winger.
The report states that Barcelona have received positive feedback from the French club and Lemar over a possible deal.
