Barcelona in for Monaco star

Barcelona are considering a move for Monaco attacker Thomas Lemar as part of their rebuild following Neymar’s exit to Paris Saint-Germain.

Sky Sports News report the Blaugrana are in for the 21-year-old who predominantly plays on the left-side of attack but is versatile across a number of offensive roles.

Monaco signed the forward from Caen for a reported €4m in 2015 while Premier League side Arsenal have reportedly seen a bid of €45m for him knocked back this summer.

Under contract at Stade Louis II until 2020, Lemar contributed 14 goals and 17 assists in 55 competitive games for the Ligue 1 winners last season.
