Robert Pires tips Thomas Lemar for summer transfer but doubts Arsenal deal

Robert Pires has played down the chances of Arsenal signing AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar this summer.
*
The France international has been regularly linked with a move to the north London club over the past 12 months or so.
*
The Gunners were thought to be interested in a potential deal to sign Lemar last summer and were reported to have offered £92m on transfer deadline day.
*
However, speculation suggested that Lemar turned down Arsenal in favour of a potential move to Liverpool FC in the future.
*
Both Arsenal and Liverpool FC were touted as contenders to sign Lemar in January but the 22-year-old remained at the Ligue 1 side.
*
Pires, though, believes Lemar will be on the move in the summer transfer window with the World Cup set to act a shop window for top clubs.
*
But the Arsenal legend doesn’t believe Lemar will be heading to Arsenal given Arsene Wenger is set to leave at the end of the season.
*
“Thomas Lemar will leave Monaco after the World Cup this summer,” Pires told bwin. “I think he needs a new challenge and would love to experience a new country.
*
“Arsenal were of course interested last year but I don’t know if that’s still the case now that Arsene Wenger will no longer be manager. He would be suited to the Premier League.”
*
Arsenal lost 3-1 to Leicester City in the Premier League mid-week to suffer their 11th defeat of the season on the road in the Premier League.
*
Lemar has scored two goals and has made eight assists in 28 appearances in the Premier League this term.
