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.
According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal have lodged a sensational British record £90m bid for Thomas Lemar as Arsene Wenger probes the market for a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean super star looks increasingly likely to leave today as the Mirror claim Arsenal have accepted a £60 million offer from Manchester City – which would see them pay £55 million up front and £5m in add ons.
That’s a reasonable deal for a player who has entered into the final year of his current deal but the proposed sale of Sanchez means the Gunners needs to find a replacement.
Lemar has been linked with a move to Arsenal all through the summer and the Daily Mail claimthe North London club have launched an audacious £90 million bid to sign the Monaco attacker.
The French champions have been driving a hard bargain over the sale of Lemar in recent months but it is difficult to see them turn down such an offer if these reports are anything to go by.
