Thomas Lemar: 5 things to know about the Arsenal and Liverpool target

Arsenal's €90M deadline day offer was enough to get Monaco to agree a sale, but Lemar was unconvinced by the Gunners and chose instead to remain at Monaco in the hopes of a better move materializing in the future.

Arsenal have moved Thomas Lemar back to the top of their wanted list and are prepared to test Monaco's resolve not to sell their star forward in January, says the Mirror.

"Things happen that even a club like Monaco can not say no to".

It happened at Liverpool.

According to the Daily Mail, Premier League sides Arsenal and Liverpool are both reportedly interested in the French global.

But with the scoring form of Liverpool's trio, especially Salah who has 17 goals so far at 0.96 per 90, Lemar to Liverpool could be a deal worth doing.

Liverpool have just sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, and the Reds could do with signing a big-name replacement in the January transfer window.

"But the thing is as well, as much as I would would love him to go to Liverpool because I think he would suit this team perfectly, he can play in different positions, he's so good on set-pieces, that left foot is fantastic, I think Klopp would make him even more world-class than he already is in many ways, there's a couple of things".

"We are not used to selling in the winter", the Monaco coach said.

"And, for Lemar, it's a risk to go to Liverpool right now in the way that, at Monaco, he would play every single game".

Lemar, a France global, was one of Monaco's best players alongside the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Bernardo Silva last season, when they managed to win the Ligue 1 title.

The Gunners looked certain to land the mercurial France worldwide after what would have been a club record fee was agreed. "This is life. For sure he was our target but as you know this is football. But I can see why Liverpool want it to happen now as well".
