Monaco winger Thomas Lemar is being sized up for a £30 million bid from Arsenal.

The Frenchman is one of several young players who excelled in Leonardo Jardim’s title-winning Monaco side last season.

Thomas Lemar began his professional career with Caen, playing alongside a potential future domestic rival in N’Golo Kante. He debuted in Ligue 1 in 2014, one year before Monaco signed him for just €4 million, while Kante left for Leicester City for €8 million

He made 51 appearances in all competitions, scoring 14 times and assisting 17, whilst playing in every game of Monaco’s Champions League campaign.

Thomas Lemar finished the league campaign with 10 assists for Monaco, more than any other player in Ligue 1.

The 21-year-old ranked fifth in Ligue 1 for key passes, with 74 from 34 appearances, showing the player has developed quality in his final product despite his lack of experience at the top-tier.

Arsenal are confident there will be few difficulties to completing the deal, perhaps thanks to the fact that their has been considerably less hype surrounding Thomas Lemar when compared to the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Bernardo Silva.

Arsenal are hopeful they will be able to announce the signing of the 21-year-old by next week.

Thomas Lemar will be Arsenal’s second acquisition of the summer after Sead Kolasinac’s free transfer from Schalke.
