Lemar no longer 50/50 – Arsenal odds-on to land star as Sanchez succession plan materialises

Some Gooners may be starting to get excited...


Encouragingly for the legions of Arsenal fans furiously refreshing the Twitter feeds of Kaveh Solhekol and John Cross, Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar is now odds-on (4/6) to join Arsenal today, according to bookmaker Paddy Power.

It seems that the Gunners are finally ready to let Alexis Sanchez leave, with the Chilean now a very short price (1/5) to join Man City before the close of the deadline day window.

German playmaker Julian Draxler, who PSG are keen to sell, is an alternative option (5/4), but Arsene Wenger appears to have prioritised signing his compatriot.

Time will tell as to whether or not Wenger can get any of these deals over the line, but, in the meantime, at least Gooners can dream.
