“We were offered Lemar, but there was no time”

Asked by UK media about Arsenal almost signing Thomas Lemar from AS Monaco last summer, Gunners boss, Arsène Wenger, stated: “I was proposed Lemar with two days of open market left.

I was interested, but there wasn’t enough time to get the negotiation done. Then he’s stayed put where he is”. Currently on a deal with Ligue 1 giants until June 2020, Lemar is tracked by Liverpool as well.
