Alexis Sanchez was expected to join Manchester City and the French boss wanted Lemar as the Chilean’s replacement.

But City refused to let Raheem Sterling go in a part-exchange deal which led to Arsenal also ending their interest in Lemar.

The France international has continued to impress in Ligue 1 and continues to be linked with a big move abroad.

But former Gunner Robert Pires reckons Arsenal no longer stand a chance of bringing Lemar to the Emirates in the future.

Pires told Bwin: “Arsene tried to buy Lemar, and tried very hard, but I don’t think the move will happen now.

“I don’t think he’s worth £90m, it’s too much, the market is crazy. What would Zidane and Ronaldinho be worth now?!”

However, it seems Arsenal will need a new attacker for their front three, with Sanchez increasingly likely to leave on a free transfer.

And they may not be able to afford the likes of Lemar, especially if they miss out on a top four finish again.
