£80m Frenchman Is In The Centre Of A Tug Of War Between Tottenham And Arsenal



Thomas Lemar would be a smart buy for Tottenham.

Tottenham have been battling with Arsenal for the signature of winger Thomas Lemar from AS Monaco. Just when it seemed like we were favourites to sign the 21-year-old, Arsenal are reportedly coming in with a fresh offer for the player.

This will not be good news for chairman Daniel Levy and manager Mauricio Pochettino, as it appears that our bitter most rivals are ready to spend the big bucks and they have reportedly made a £40million offer for the winger, who has been left out of the promotional posters for the new kit.

The Independent reports that the 21-year-old is at the centre of a tug of war between Arsenal and Tottenham. The latest indications are that the former may be ready to make a huge offer for the player, who was important for Monaco last season. Most of the high-profile players at Monaco have been linked with a move away from the French club, despite managing to win the French Ligue1 title last season.

Bernardo Silva has already joined a Premier League club in the form of Manchester City, while Tiemoue Bakayoko is believed to be on the verge of a move to Chelsea.

In such a scenario, Tottenham fans have not been treated to a lot of positives in the transfer window so far. Despite being linked with several players over the last few months, Daniel Levy is yet to make a concrete signing who will improve the team substantially.

Arsenal have been able to agree personal terms with the player according to reports from the Sun, but Monaco are reportedly not ready to let the player leaves for anything less than £80million.

Such a transfer fee would be a huge blow for our hopes of signing the player, as Levy may not be in a position to make such an offer at a time when the club have invested heavily in the new stadium. Since the player has three years left on his contract, Monaco are unlikely to sell him for something less than their valuation.
