Arsenal 'closing in on' second summer signing

Transfer news: The latest rumours from Arsenal

Mahrez Ready To Sign 4-Year Arsenal Deal Ahead Of Proposed £35m Move

Arsenal are intensifying their efforts to sign both Thomas Lemar and Alexandre Lacazette, while fresh soundings have also been taken over the availability of Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez.

In case you didn't know.

Performances with Caen in Ligue 2, the French second division, caught Monaco's eye and there Lemar has been part of a group of young players taking Europe by storm.

There are hundreds of Arsenal transfer rumours lately saying that a deal is going to be announced in the next week for the French worldwide Thomas Lemar.

With Alexis Sanchez possibly leaving the club this summer, Lemar would be a good option for Wenger out on the left.

Mayweather vs. McGregor fight scheduled for Aug. 26
Bookmakers do not doubt his success and assume that a Floyd for the first time since 2011, will be able to knock out his opponent. So what does the UFC get out of it? Mayweather is known more as a "point fighter" winning 23 of his 49 fights by decision.

Lemar had not looked likely to become such a big star before the 2016/17 season following a return of just five goals and five assists in his first 34 first-team appearances.

Wenger loves midfielders who can both create and score goals, and Lemar has proven he's equally adept at both.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a brilliant campaign last season to help his side win the Ligue 1 title - scoring 14 goals and making 14 assists in all competitions. His ability on free kicks is also a huge bonus.

Lemar, who has always been coveted by Tottenham Hotspur, likes to play on the left flank - the position Sánchez has occupied most regularly at the Emirates Stadium. He averaged 2.2 key passes per game in the league, the fourth highest among all players, using his left foot to create chances for teammates from all over the pitch. Lemar would certainly be an upgrade over Iwobi.

Liverpool chiefs have made an official enquiry to sign Arsenal attacking midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, the Sun has claimed.
