Arsene Wenger has revealed Thomas Lemar rejected the chance to join Arsenal for €100 million, but promises to make another bid for the Monaco man.
Wenger tried to bring the France international to the Emirates on deadline day and send Sanchez to Monaco. However, Lemar’s decision to stay at Monaco scuppered the deal.
The long-term Arsenal manager will not be deterred by the 21-year-old’s decision and will make another bid in the future.
“He decided to stay at Monaco,” Wenger told Telefoot. “Did we make a €100m offer? Yes. Are we going to make another offer? Yes.
“He is always ready to receive the ball, he is quite complete in both defence and attack.”
