Arsenal are said to have taken a step further in their race to sign Monaco winger Thomas Lemar, according to Le10 Sport.

With doubt hanging over the future of Alexis Sanchez at the club with no agreement reached yet about a new contract, , manager Arsene Wenger is seeking a replacement if the Chilean decides to move out of the Emirates. Le10 Sport reported that the Gunners have made official contact with the player’s representative to inform them they will be offering to Monaco.

There remain doubts however over whether the Ligue One side will be willing to let the 21 year old go this summer. With the likely departure of Tiemoue Bakayoko to Chelsea, following on from the sale of Bernardo Silva to Manchester City, there has been some questions about how many players Monaco will release out of the club.

Lemar had an exemplary season in the French League, netting 14 goals and providing 17 assists in 55 games.
