Why Arsenal want to sign Monaco livewire Lemar


Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is hopeful of securing a deal for a player he believes can be the future of French football.

With Bernardo Silva having already departed for Manchester City, the latest hot prospect courting serious interest from the Premier League is Thomas Lemar, who is poised to join Arsenal.

CHELSEA are facing a £200million body blow with Eden Hazard and Diego Costa BOTH set to quit this summer.

Chelsea would not raise as much for Costa, 28, as Hazard.
But the champions-elect would have to spend around £200m to replace both players with similar quality.

Robert Lewandowski a perfect replacement for Diego Costa at Chelsea

Since the final whistle blew on Chelsea's 2016-17 campaign, barely a day has gone by without an eye-catching story regarding the club's striker department.
Diego Costa's uncertain future at Stamford Bridge has been thrown into stark relief with his revelation that Antonio Conte had sent him a text message that stated that he was no longer wanted. Michy Batshuayi also wasted little time in issuing his own verdict on a stuttering debut season in England by asserting that he is not prepared to be a bit-part player in a World Cup year.

Ajax will face Manchester United in the final of the Europa League after narrowly overcoming Lyon with a 5-4 aggregate victory.


Kasper Dolberg's exquisite goal proved vital as 10-man Ajax clung on seal their place in the Europa League final despite a 3-1 defeat to Lyon, who saw their dramatic attempt at comeback fall short.
