Arsenal are looking to significantly improve their ranks at the end of the season and major moves could be on the cards yet again.
The Gunners have broken their club-record transfer fee in each of the last two windows, signing Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon last summer and then securing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund on January’s Deadline Day.
Arsenal could break that figure once again this summer, as they seek to find a replacement for Alexis Sanchez after his January move to Manchester United, and it could see the north London side return for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.
The French international, who scored for his nation in a 3-2 defeat to Colombia last week, was widely linked with a move to the Premier League but remained with the Ligue 1 champions- although he’s now admitted he was disappointed by a failed move.
However, quoted by The Evening Standard, the 22-year-old ace has opened the door for a potential switch this summer.
“I am not going to hide it, I was a bit disappointed. But there is no point fixating on that. I have continued to work so that these clubs might come back for me in the following transfer window.”
“My future? I am open to everything. I love all the different leagues.”
Lemar, also linked with Liverpool, could catch the eye further at this summer’s World Cup and could raise his value with top-class performances.
