Thomas Lemar set for Monaco bust-up if Arsenal transfer denied

And according to Emanuele Giulianelli, writing for Tribal Football, the Gunners have agreed a deal with Monaco for the 21-year-old.

Mbappe himself has been frequently linked with a move to Arsenal and Real Madrid - report The Mirror, and just to get to pre-season with him still involved is a big victory for the Ligue 1 champions. "He can play on the left, he can play on the right, he can score goals and he can make assists".

The father of Kylian Mbappe has reportedly held negotiations with Monaco amid speculation that Arsenal are preparing a huge bid for the player.

Monaco are looking to keep as many of their squad together as they can ahead of the new season, and most recently are said to have ignored a €45m offer for Lemar from Arsenal because they viewed it as a complete waste of time.

However, sources contacted by GFFN believe that internally, Vasilyev has set an extortionate price at which he would accept to sell Lemar at, but that he has refused to tell Arsenal what that price is in an attempt to produce a show of strength and continue the facade that Lemar is not for sale at any price. What we know now with Mbappe is it's over £100m, after that it's free for everyone to imagine. But despite rumors claiming the England winger could leave the Emirates this summer window, the Red north London club boss Arsene Wenger has "emphatically" denied such rumors.
