Manchester United to hijack Arsenal Thomas Lemar bid

Arsenal confident of Lemar deal Report: Manchester United to rival Arsenal with club-record January move for Thomas Lemar

Arsenal failed to prise him away from Monaco on deadline day owing to "genuine problems in pushing the deal through in time", as Lemar was on worldwide duty with France.

It is now being reported that Arsenal will again lose out on the play in January as Manchester United will sign Lemar for £92 million.

Moves for either Antoine Griezmann or Gareth Bale remain an option, but it is now claimed Lemar has shot to the top of Mourinho's wanted list. However, the Reds were put off by Monaco's asking price. Boss Arsene Wenger has told associates the Lemar deal does not hinge on Alexis Sanchez being sold in the New Year.

Arsenal's offer was accepted on August 31, only for the player to change his mind over the move, and decided he wished to stay with Monaco for the time being.

The Monaco star was close to a switch to the Emirates on transfer deadline day after the Gunners struck a fee with the Ligue 1 champions, but were forced to end their pursuit after not leaving enough time to finalise the deal. However, the team lost their first match of the season over the weekend, losing to derby rivals Nice, 4-0.

Lemar was once of the transfer sagas of the summer window as the 21-year-old was strongly linked with a move to the Premier League after emerging as one of the hottest young talents in Europe.
