Monaco Boss Claims Thomas Lemar Could Leave In January Amid Arsenal Interest

10 January 2018

And his decision meant Arsenal pulled the plug on Alexis Sanchez moving to Manchester City.

And with Liverpool losing Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona on a £142m deal, the Reds are now reported to be interested in signing Lemar as a replacement.

Lemar is one of the best young midfielders in Europe and will certainly enhance the quality of the current Liverpool midfield. The principality club won the Ligue 1 title ahead of firm favourites PSG, and the youngster played a key role in their triumphant campaign. The Gunners though, failed to land him with a late a £90 million deadline day bid as the player stayed put.

The left winger has endured something of a damp squib of a season compared to 12 months ago, with only two goals and four assists accrued in 19 Monaco appearances. Manchester City still hope to strike a deal for Alexis Sanchez this month after their summer deadline day move collapsed, a development that would once again see Arsenal turn to Lemar as a replacement for the Chile global, Saturday's report from L'Equipe added.


The Chilean is reportedly close to a switch to the Etihad and Arsene Wenger sees Lemar as the ideal replacement.

"We've had nothing yet to suggest that their transfer strategy has changed". In turn, they are set to launch the offensive for Lemar, to secure his services ahead of Liverpool. But according to Sky Sports, the Merseyside club are not looking to bring forward a possible move for the 22-year-old.

The Brazilian said: "We are not used to selling in the winter, but the transfer window lasts until the end of the month and many things can happen". With surging interest of the top clubs in their prized possession, Monaco have made a decision to encash big on Lemar and have demanded a whopping £90 million for his services.

The mega deal that saw Barcelona sign Coutinho means that Liverpool have funds available to them.
