What Would Thomas Lemar Bring?....transfer window Thomas Lemar The Gunners Monaco F.C. Kylian Mbappe Emirates Stadium Champions League Arsene Wenger Arsenal Transfers Arsenal F.C.

Experience

2013 - 2015

Caen

0 goals from 10 appearances in 2013-14 did not set the field ablaze in his first season. His second season netted only 1 goal from 26 games before his move to Monaco.

2015/6 - 2017

Monaco

5 from 34 games might seem paltry but it was a continuation of his gradual improvement during his first season with Monaco. Then, last season he began to realize his promise by netting 14 in 55 games despite not being the spearhead of the attack.

About Lemar

  • Born: 12 November 1995(currently 21)
  • Height: 1.7 metres(5 foot 7)                  
  • Position: Midfielder(attacking)                               

Value

2016

During 2016, Lemar's value incresased from around 5 million in Jan to around 17 million by the end of the year.

2017

according to transfermarkt.co.uk, Lemar's current value is around 20.5 million pounds. However, recent bids suggest that the highly inflated market will add at least 50% to that figure.

Skills

Goals Per Game
Goals 26%
Assists

Passing

Stats show that Lemar's value has increased exponentially in the last year or so, so Arsenal may have missed the boat in getting the best value for money.

That aside, at 21 years of age , and, given the massive rise in transfer fees over the last couple of years, it is possible that Lemar could still end up being a wise imvestment. Given also that Mbappe will only be sold for figures north of 100 million, Lemar is much more a realistic proposition.

Essentially an attacking midfielder with the panache of Ox or Walcott, Lemar has, it seems a much better finish. Walcott's finishing is less than powerful despite his 100 goals for the Gunners, and, Ox flatters to deceive, one minute a wordl beater the next a hard working but barely noticeable combatant.

There are, of course a few concerns:

  • Can he adjust to the EPL?
  • Will his progress continue at the rate shown recently?
  • Will he at 58 kg be strong enough to remain injury free.
  • Can Arsenal get him at a reasonable price?

Given the limited experience that he has, his talent is clearly enough to justify interest from the Gunners. Will he end up a world beater or Walcott 2.0? .....Watch this space!

Why Mbappe WILL Fill Alexis’ Boots…

Why Mbappe WILL Fill Alexis' Boots...transfer window The Gunners Premier League Title Kylian Mbappe F.A. Cup EPL English Premier League Arsene Wenger Arsene Arsenal FC Arsenal #Mbappe #Gunners #Football #FA Cup #EnglishPremierLeague #Alexis Sanchez #Alexis

With some quotes saying that Arsenal will have to pay 130 million for Mbappe, is he really worth it?

With Sanchez possibly going out the door, the answer is yes! Here's Why:

  • Sanchez will likely command a sale fee of 50 million, a significant profit.
  • This fee will reduce Mbappe's purchase price to around 80 million, which will be further offset by other departures.
  • Sanchez is at his peak, this will be the best time to sell to gain the most favourable deal.
  • Sanchez has about 4 years at his peak, Mbappe has 14 years.
  • The massive escalation in transfer fees mean that 130 million will likely be surpassed by his resale value in a few years.

 

But can Mbappe really fill Alexis' boots? There is no doubt that Sanchez is at his peak: 72 goals in 145 games for Arsenal clearly surpasses his 47 in 141 for Barcelona, and his 21 in 112 for Udinese.

Mbappe showed massive improvement in his second season to score 26 goals in 44 games for Monaco. This is almost exactly the same ratio as Sanchez' 30 goals in 51 games for Arsenal last season.

 

Clearly, one player will not necessarily win Arsenal the title, as shown by the failure to win with Alexis here. However, the price should not be prohibitive(as shown above), and, his pacy ability to put the ball in the back of the net should match(and probably surpass) that of Alexis Sanchez!
