Following the acquisition of Alexander Lacazette from Olympique Lyonnais in a whopping deal, manager Arsene Wenger has apparently claimed to be open for a few more signings. Though Thomas Lemar’s name wasn’t explicitly mentioned, his recent activity suggests the move may just be on the cards.
Supposedly on a vacation, Lemar was spotted in Switzerland where a fan donning an Arsenal shirt clicked a picture with him and also described the former’s excitement in doing so. If anything, this is seen as an indirect indication of his impending move to Emirates.
The Frenchman has been tight-lipped about his future, although the talks of a move to Arsenal have been in the air even before the 2016/17 season came to a conclusion. Nor have Arsenal made anything public about this.
Yet, this picture does come at a time when the cream is rising to the top. Just when a deal may be finally struck. With the summer window just 18 days since ajar, there is still a lot to come and a lot to go.
