The former Gunners winger believes that a Monaco star who has been heavily linked with a move to England will be up for grabs after the World Cup.
Arsenal may be about to see the door opened to Monaco winger Thomas Lemar, with former Gunners star Robert Pires expecting his fellow Frenchman to be on the move this summer.
Arsene Wenger targeted the France international in 2017, only to see late approaches knocked back prior to the transfer deadline passing.
Interest may, however, be rekindled once a new man takes the helm at Emirates Stadium.
Lemar, as a 22-year-old talent, remains a solid option for several suitors for the present and future, with Pires of the opinion that he could be heading to England after World Cup 2018.
He told bwin: “Thomas Lemar will leave Monaco after the World Cup this summer.
“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.”
Lemar may not be the only star turn swapping Ligue 1 for the Premier England when the transfer window re-opens.
