ARSENAL have reportedly launched a £30million bid for Monaco star Thomas Lemar.
The playmaker has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates this summer after a fantastic season in Ligue 1.
And French newspaper L’Equipe claims the Gunners have finally submitted an offer for the versatile playmaker.
It’s said that the offer exceeds Atletico Madrid’s £26.5m bid which was made a year ago.
And with Lemar open to leaving Monaco, it seems Arsenal have beaten north London rivals Tottenham to his signature.

Lemar is a talented midfielder capable of playing on either wing or as a No.10.
And Arsene Wenger has made him his top target as doubts linger over the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
Lemar isn’t the first player to leave French champs and Champions league finalists Monaco, with Bernardo Silva joining Manchester City in May.
Meanwhile, Tiemoue Bakayoko is closing in on a move to Chelsea as midfield partner Fabinho tempts Manchester United into an offer.
