€40m Atletico star is 95% sure he wants to join Arsenal

Posted by

Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Lemar reportedly wants to join Arsenal this summer and has offered his services to the Gunners.  

This is according to Todofichajes, who reports that if Arsenal decides to enter into negotiations for Lemar, the Frenchman is 95% sure that his future is in North London.

The player’s team has already contacted Arsenal to offer his services and have received great interest from the London club states Todofichajes. Lemar is entering the last year of his contract with Atletico and has just rejected a renewal offer for the second time, therefore it would be of benefit for the La Liga side to sell the 26-year-old during the current summer market and receive a fee.

Lemar wants to play for Arsenal 

Lemar was an important player for Diego Simeone last season as an attacking midfielder due to his versatility. The Frenchman can play in midfield or on either wing and that could be of great use to Arteta next season – who plays with three behind an attacker.

The Gunners have been in the market for a winger this summer and have been linked with a move for Leeds’ Raphinha but have fallen behind the competition in that race reports  The Athletic. Lemar would tick this box for the Arsenal boss and would arrive at the Emirates for much cheaper.

Todofichajes reports that Lemar could join Arsenal for around €35m but Atletico are said to want €40m for the French star.



More Stories Thomas Lemar


  1. For I will not like us to go for Thomas lemar because he rejected Arsenal in the past to Athletic Madrid and he faded away and dropped form so for me there are many good players better than him let’s go for real good players no gambling this time around he is no longer a quality let’s go for qualities let’s forget about Lemar right now Edu and Arteta go for world class players

  2. If I were Arsenal, I would sign Lemar as a deep lying playmaker / box to box midfielder in Xhaka’s place. He covers a lot of ground and can also operate in advanced midfield positions alongside Odegaard or Fabio Vieira. However, I wouldn’t pay more than €30m for him. Plus I would consider swapping him with Bellerin.

    1. I don’t think if Lemar can help arsenal first of all the time arsenal wanted him he refused and joined athletic

  3. This is rumour, Arsenal will not be that stupid to go for Thomas Lemar, he is a flop and has lost his spark.

  4. Who cares? AFC have Thomas Lemar already, he’s called Nicholas Pepe, more dead weight, with a “name” and not much else is unnecessary!

  5. Rejected us when we really needed him. he has lost his touch and now want to come and spoil our rebuilding process.there are so many players better than him now.hope arsenal don’t fall for another Pepe
