To make things better for City, AS Monaco have accepted the offer! Now it’s up to Lemar to decide if he wants to join Arsenal.
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— James Ducker (@TelegraphDucker) August 31, 2017
So the situation is clear: if Lemar decides to join Arsenal today, then Alexis Sánchez will join City on a £60 million deal.
PLEASE JOIN ARSENAL, LEMAR. PLEASE!
