The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

LON­DON. — Arse­nal have had a bid in ex­cess of £30 mil­lion turned down for Monaco winger Thomas Le­mar and are now con­sid­er­ing whether to for­malise their in­ter­est in Le­ices­ter City’s Riyad Mahrez.

Arsène Wenger’s trans­fer pri­or­i­ties have been the French trio of Kylian Mbappé, Alexan­dre La­cazette and Le­mar, with Arse­nal hop­ing to sign two new for­wards ahead of Alexis Sánchez’s likely de­par­ture.

Arse­nal are now pre­par­ing a new raid on Monaco for star man Le­mar.

Le­mar is wanted by the Gun­ners this sum­mer.

But so far the English Premier League soc­cer giants haven’t made any head­way with a deal.

The Times re­ported yes­ter­day that an open­ing £31m of­fer for the French mid­fielder has been knocked back by Monaco.

And they add a re­newed bid of closer to £35m is now be­ing pre­peared. — The Daily Star.
