AS Monaco have reportedly agreed on a fee with Arsenal for the transfer of French midfielder, Thomas Lemar.
This could be an incredible transfer deadline day for Arsenal FC as they look set to complete some massive transfers.
Alexis Sanchez is reportedly close to the exit door at the Emirates but it seems that Arsene Wenger is already plotting his replacement.
We broke the news earlier that the Gunners had made a club-record £90 million bid for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar and now, The Telegraph‘s James Ducker is reporting that the two clubs have agreed on a fee.
I'm told that Monaco and Arsenal have agreed a fee for Lemar but that it's now down to the player to decide if he will go #AFC

The Gunners have been tracking Lemar all summer long in what has been a stop-start transfer deal for all parties concerned.
- Arsenal turn to ‘one-goal’ striker with Vlahovic transfer unlikely
- Arsenal anger as Aubameyang holds out for ‘giant’ transfer
- Arsenal 0-0 Burnley player ratings: Gunners lose ground on top four
Add to that the reported interest in the Monaco man from European giants like FC Barcelona and you’ve got one complicated story.
The reports that Arsenal are the first club to have agreed on a fee with Monaco for the player are fantastic, timely news. Lemar was hugely impressive for Monaco last season and is one of the brightest young talents in something of a golden generation for French football.
