Monaco Boss Admits Liverpool & Arsenal Target Thomas Lemar Could Leave in January

Monaco head coach Leonardo Jardim hints that players could be sold this month amid reports that Liverpool are interested in Thomas Lemar.

All the latest Arsenal transfer news and rumours from across the British and European press on Tuesday, January 9.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger wants Monaco star Lemar to replace the Chilean but will face competition from Liverpool who are looking to replace Philippe Coutinho who has joined Barcelona.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal were close to a deal on deadline day during the summer with the Gunners even making a £90 million bid for the attacker.

"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 awesome, I think Klopp would make him even more world-class than he already is in many ways, there's a couple of things".

But a report from L'Equipe on Saturday claimed that Monaco have softened that stance, believing they can now earn more from his departure now than if they wait for the summer.

Liverpool will reportedly not move for Lemar this month.

Lemar emerged as one of the hottest young attacking talents in European football after providing 14 goals and 17 assists to help fire Monaco to the Ligue 1 title last season.

"It might happen. I think it won't happen now but more [likely] in the summer than now, in January, but it might still happen before I get abused by Liverpool fans".

"We don't usually sell in winter, but the transfer window is open until the end of the month, and you have to prepare yourself for anything and everything", Jardim told L'Equipe.

Arsenal attempted to sign Lemar last summer, failing with a bid late in the transfer window, and remain keen on the France global, while Liverpool have been linked following the sale of Philippe Coutinho.
