Monaco's Thomas Lemar 'has the right profile to play for Arsenal' - Pires

Alexis Sanchez hints at a desire to leave Arsenal, saying his aim is Champions League success.

Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar would be a perfect fit for Arsenal, according to Gunners great Robert Pires.

Arsenal have reportedly had two bids turned down for Lemar this summer, but are still hoping to lure the France international to the Emirates Stadium.

Lemar scored nine goals and registered 10 assists to help Monaco to last season's Ligue 1 title, and Pires says he would be a great signing for his former club.

"I love him as a player," Pires told Sky Sports. "For me, Thomas Lemar is one of the best French players there is. He can play on the left, he can play on the right, he can score goals and he can make assists.

"Lemar is the kind of player who can make a difference. He has the right profile to play for Arsenal, definitely. I hope for him and for Arsenal that it happens."

Arsenal have already made one signing from Ligue 1 this summer, bringing in striker Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon for a club-record fee reported to be around €53 million.
