Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal are willing to pay Thomas Lemar £100k-per-week if he signs for them, potentially hiking their summer spending over the £100m mark.
Lemar is presently a priority for Arsenal and they are hoping they can secure the deal this summer.
While Monaco are driving a hard bargain, Arsenal believe the French international is keen on a move to the Emirates.
According to The Sun, Arsenal will approach him with a five-year deal worth £100k-per-week. The offer would significantly raise his current wage at Monaco.
The biggest obstacle for Arsenal currently is negotiating a transfer fee with Monaco.
Arsenal have had two bids rejected already and are hoping that a third bid of around £45m will be accepted.
Having spent close to £50m for Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon, the Gunners might have to exceed their budget of £100m to secure the services of Lemar.
The latter was one the outstanding players at Monaco in the previous season, netting 14 goals and providing 17 assists across all competitions.
