Thomas Lemar to sign for Arsenal? Big move in odds of Monaco star moving to the Gunners
The odds on Thomas Lemar moving to Arsenal have been slashed by bookmakers this morning.
The Gunners have been linked with a move for the Monaco star all summer but it looked as though any deal was dead.
However, this morning he odds on a move to Arsenal have come right in from 19/1 last night to as short as 2/1 now with Sky Bet. That has meant that Arsenal are favourites with that particular bookmaker – that’s ahead of Liverpool who have seemingly ended their interest following the signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
If Arsenal do sell Alexis Sanchez then that could open the door for Arsenal to make a big move. That could be for Lemar or perhaps Julian Draxler.
Lemar was part of the Monaco attack that took Europe by storm last season as they reached the Champions League semi final and beat PSG to the Ligue 1 title.
However, that team has been decimated with many of the stars moving on. Monaco could decide to cash in on Lemar whose value may never be higher. It could be the one big deal for Arsenal today.
