EXCLUSIVE: Arsenal strike Thomas Lemar deal with Monaco

Arsenal have struck a deal with AS Monaco for France international winger Thomas Lemar, I can reveal.

Lemar to Arsenal is a done deal. As I've already written on Tribalfootball.com, the Gunners have been pursuing their main target for much of this transfer window, with Lemar a name demanded by manager Arsene Wenger himself. More so than Kylian Mbappé - more than anyone else.

The price agreed for the French winger, born in Guadeloupe in 1995, is around £48 million plus some bonuses to be added. It's close to the price asked at the beginning of the negotiations by Monaco - £53 million as we've already reported.

An official announcement is expected when Arsenal return from their tour of Australia and China: Monaco have asked Arsenal to wait - with medicals, official pictures and his presentation to be delayed until they find a replacement for the French youngster.
