This Is Why Signing Top Players This Summer Is Difficult - Arsene Wenger

This Is Why Signing Top Players This Summer Is Difficult - Arsene Wenger”

According to The Sun, there appears to be a breakthrough in negotiations and Arsenal are now on the brink of signing Thomas Lemar.

That is according to Italian football journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.

The France worldwide came off the bench during a 2-0 win against Sydney FC to strike on his debut and Wenger admitted his delight at his new acquisition's fine start. Although the two men often disagree, and have often found themselves clashing on multiple occasions, they seem to be on the same page regarding the 2017 summer transfer market.

"Despite Monaco's insistence that he stays at the club, we understand Arsenal maintain a keen interest in the player", Sheth said on Sky Sports News. "Not a lot [has] happened". The Gunners are reportedly prepared to lodge an improved bid worth £45 million to entice Monaco to part ways with the winger/midfielder.

"The difficulty is to bring top-level players in because you pay a huge amount of money for very normal players at the moment", the Frenchman told Arsenal Player.

"Maybe this will be the first time we [football clubs] pay over £200m, maybe over £300m with Neymar and around £200m with Mbappe. But we are active, we are working hard and I think we have done well with Kolasinac, we have done well with Lacazette and we are continuing to work". Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy have already left them to join Manchester City, and Tiemoué Bakayoko has signed with Chelsea as well.

Indeed, Nelson's impact on the first team has been so striking that he has again been selected for senior duties at Arsenal's Emirates Cup. The rocketing revenue streams generated by television contracts makes the clubs richer, and therefore allows them to spend more on acquiring top notch players.

The attacker's wages would also be topped up by performance-related bonuses and image rights, which could take his earnings to a staggering £400,000-a-week.
