Arsenal are set to walk away from their long-standing interest in Monaco forward Thomas Lemar due to the financial demands.

Barcelona are poised to join the race to sign Lemar which will only serve to send the cost of any deal soaring.

Arsenal were close to sealing a £90million swoop on deadline day but fear the cost will be considerably more.

And the Gunners have already started to look at alternatives, with Lyon's Nabil Fekir and Manchester City's Raheem Sterling on Wenger's radar.

The Frenchman failed in an attempt to take England international Sterling to the Emirates Stadium in the summer but wants to revisit a potential swap deal with Alexis Sanchez when the transfer window re-opens. 

Pep Guardiola refused to sanction Sterling's exit after Arsenal asked about including the former Liverpool star in City's bid to land Sanchez.

City are preparing another move for the Chilean in January and the Gunners remain keen on landing Sterling as part of any potential deal.

Sterling has been a revelation for City this season, scoring 10 goals and delivering two assists to become a key part of Guardiola's plans.

With that in mind, it remains to be seen whether Guardiola would even consider allowing Sterling to leave the Etihad.

Nevertheless, that will not prevent Arsenal from making a second attempt to bring Sterling back to London in January.
