Arsenal fans have been sent into a state of panic with just over a fortnight until the transfer window opens once more after Thomas Lemar teased them on Instagram once more.
The Gunners were thought to be the frontrunners for the Frenchman’s signature for much of the summer and reportedly even had a £92m bid accepted on the final day of the summer window. But the deal collapsed and Lemar remained in France with Monaco.
Now, with the transfer window set to re-open on January 1, Arsenal fans are hoping that they can convince the 22-year-old to join them in north London.
He had elected to stay with the Ligue 1 champions in order to play Champions League football but with Monaco crashing out of Europe entirely after finishing bottom of the group, a deal could now be done.
Recent reports have linked Lemar with a move to London rivals Chelsea but the French winger’s recent social media activity has given Gooners hope after he liked a comment welcoming him to Arsenal.
Naturally, this sent Arsenal fans into a frenzy as they began to imagine what their team may look like with Lemar lined up alongside the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil.
Below is just a sample of what Gunners supporters were saying last night as the news broke.
