Arsenal are reportedly set to make a fresh bid for France international forward Thomas Lemar in January, according to the Mail.

The Premier League side, who visited Turf Moor to take on Burnley in the top-flight this afternoon, have been linked with the AS Monaco winger ahead of the New Year market, after failing to lure the winger to the Emirates Stadium during the previous summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old, who has eight international caps for his country, has scored just one goal and provided three assists in 14 appearances in all competitions for the defending Ligue 1 champions so far this season.

Monaco’s Thomas Lemar in action with Besiktas’ Ricardo Quaresma.

Lemar, who joined Monaco back in 2015 from French rivals Caen, has netted 20 times in 103 games overall for the club.

After failing with a deadline day offer of £90m for his services a couple of months ago, the report suggests Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is ready to try his luck again in January, although the club will bid well below their previous valuation.
