  1. If Arsenal are as fast as they were to conclude the Lacazette deal, and if Monaco are as cooperating as Lyon were in accepting Arsenal 2nd bid for Lacazette, the Arsenal 2nd bid of £40m to sign Lemar who wants to join Arsenal should have been accepted by now by Monaco and the deal done. And Lemar would have joined the Gunners that flew to Australia on Sunday to begin their pre-preason Asia 4 friendly matches.

    Since Lemar is the only player whose being linked with Arsenal by the media has appeared to be a true media link this time out of the 77 listed, for, there were reported 2 Arsenal bids in the media to sign the lad, and Arsenal did not deny the media claims. Therefore, these media claims should be taken as a true report and not just one of those media transfer rumours.

    In this light, to stop these delays occasioned to sign Lemar by Arsenal, and since the player himself has agreed to come to Arsenal and terms have been agreed with him according to reports, therefore, without anymore further delays, Arsenal should table that their reported media bid of £45m to Monaco to sign Lemar who I believe will like to join Arsenal to participate in the Arsenal Asia friendlies. To hasten his playing in these Arsenal Asia friendlies, Arsenal can do his medical in France immediately after they’ve signed him, I don’t have to teach Arsenal how they should do their medical, should I?
