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.
Liverpool have submitted an offer of £66.5 million for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar, according to reports emerging from France.
Jurgen Klopp is keen to sign more players before the transfer deadline on Thursday, and L’Equipe report the Anfield hierarchy have directed their attention to Lemar.
Monaco face losing arguably their two biggest names this week, with Kylian Mbappe expected to complete a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
It could initially be a loan deal, with the option to buy for a whopping £166 million next summer, but all the details are yet to be sorted out.
Liverpool’s €72million offer is reportedly inclusive of €8million in add-ons.
Lemar is contracted to Monaco until 2020, having signed for the club for just €4million two years back.
L’Equipe say Lemar is hoping a move to the Premier League would materialise, following interest from Arsenal earlier in the summer.
The Gunners apparently made three bids, with their final one over £46million.
