Arsene Wenger’s three primary Arsenal transfer targets have been revealed in the press on Tuesday afternoon.
According to the Daily Mirror, Wenger has drawn up a list of the three main men he wants to land this summer after signing a two-year deal to stay at The Emirates.
The trio Wenger apparently wants are Monaco pair Kylian Mbappe and Thomas Lemar and Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.
And while Wenger may be confident of luring Lemar and Lacazette, he will have his work cut out to snare France forward Mbappe, who is being courted by Real Madrid.
Mbappe also recently claimed to win the Champions League was “a dream” thus making Wenger’s efforts to sign the 18-year-old even more difficult.
Arsenal have though made a bid of £87million, which has been rejected and are believed to be preparing a world-record £122million move for the player.
Lyon striker Lacazette is a much more realistic target for Wenger after he saw a bid for the France forward rejected last summer.
Reports today have suggested that Lyon have placed a €67million price tag on Lacazette after holding talks with the Gunners.
Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has indicated that his star striker Lacazette will be allowed to leave the club this summer with two years remaining on his Les Gones contract.
Lemar meanwhile, is believed to be admired by Wenger after a fantastic season for Monaco in which the 21 year-old scored 14 times in 55 appearances from a left-sided attacking role.
