Arsenal and Leicester City are in talks for Riyad Mahrez.
The Telegraph says Arsenal have opened talks with Leicester over Mahrez, who they see as a fallback option should they not sign Lemar.
Discussions have been held with the Foxes for the Algeria international, but the two clubs are some way off agreeing a fee.
Arsenal value the 26-year-old at around £35m but Leicester are holding out for closer to £50m for the 2016 PFA player of the season.
Mahrez has handed in a transfer request in a bid to force a move away and is keen on a switch to the Emirates.
