Huge: Arsene Wenger Ready To Sell Up To Eight Players To Fund The Transfer Of This French Sensation
Arsene Wenger seems to have taken it personally that Arsenal failed to qualify for the Champions League for the next season.
He is one of the busiest managers in Europe at the moment, trying to add the right quality to his first team for the next season.
The Gunners have already signed Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac, both of who are expected to be a huge part of the first team next season.
But Wenger is not done yet and is desperate for more additions to the squad before the start of the next season.
The manager is adamant that Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez will stay back at the club but that has not stopped him from scouting for yet another winger.
According to various reports, Arsene Wenger is desperate to sign Thomas Lemar from AS Monaco this summer.

The Gunners have not left any stone unturned in this move for the French sensation and have already made a couple of bids for his services.
French Champions AS Monaco have already lost two of their first team players in Tiemoue Bakayoko and Bernardo Silva already this summer and are reluctant to let Lemar leave on the cheap.
They have already rejected a £30m bid and a £40m bid from Arsenal for his services and are not ready to let him go for anything less than his release clause.
And it is now understood that Wenger is getting desperate and this is the step he wants to take to get Lemar to the Emirates.
Wenger ready to sell up to eight players to fund Lemar
According to reports from Daily Mail, Wenger is ready to off load up to eight players, to make sure that he can fund a move for the 21-year old French winger.
Wojciech Szczesny, Mathieu Debuchy and Carl Jenkinson are all close to quitting the club this summer.
Szczesny is wanted by Italian giants Juventus while Crystal Palace, Brighton and Newcastle are all keen on Jenkinson.

Debuchy is expected to return to France with Nice this week while English full back Kieran Gibbs is a target for Watford, Newcastle and West Brom.
Spanish striker Lucas Perez is wanted back in the La Liga while Palace have already made a bid for Calum Chambers for a move this summer.
But the most high profile exits could be Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud, both of who are not expected to play in the first team next season.
