City in for Lemar?

Manchester City are ready to land another blow on their Premier League rivals by launching a bid to sign Monaco’s Thomas Lemar. Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea have all been tracking Lemar, but City are preparing to jump to the front of the queue for the France winger.The news, together with the fact City are expected to sign Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, will heighten fears among those trying to keep up with City that Pep Guardiola’s side will be uncatchable for a number of years.City tried to sign both Alexis Sánchez and Riyad Mahrez in January, as Guardiola wants another forward who can play off the flank to add to his squad.Eden Hazard is high on Guardiola’s list of targets, but Chelsea are adamant he will not be sold to City – even for a world record fee. That is likely to result in City turning their attention to 22-year-old Lemar, who is expected to leave Monaco to the highest bidder in the summer.Arsenal failed with a £90 million bid for Lemar last year, while Liverpool saw at least one offer turned down by the Ligue 1 club. Reports in France have claimed Liverpool are pushing to find an agreement in principle over Lemar, but no deal is thought to be close and City could blow them out of the water.With two years remaining on his Monaco contract at the end of this season, it is unclear whether or not City will have to match or better the £90m Arsenal put up for Lemar.City paid £52m to take left-back Benjamin Mendy from Monaco last summer and the 23-year-old would no doubt be delighted to link up with Lemar again at the Etihad.Since joining from Caen in 2015, Lemar, who is left-footed but can play on either side or through the middle, has made 107 appearances for Monaco and scored 22 goals. Guardiola last week revealed that he is only looking to make one or two signings this summer and Fred is thought to be one of them. Having spent £448m since he was appointed as City manager, Guardiola has predicted the club will be less active and concentrate on key deals.“Of course we buy a lot of players and they have helped us a lot and next summer is to buy one or two players more,” said Guardiola. “So our market in the summer will be cheaper. If you want to compete at a high level of competitions you need the good players, and the good players make good managers, good clubs.”Despite an acceptance that City cannot go on spending as they have, a number of their rivals are already worried that they will dominate while Guardiola remains there.City are 16 points ahead of second-placed United and 20 in front of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, and those in charge of trying to cut the gap are pessimistic over their chances.No team has retained the Premier League title since United won it for three successive seasons from 2007-09.

Saw him play in an international match and he was terrific. Not followed his progress this season, but it seems everyone in England wants him.
