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

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

Arsenal are ready to resurrect the £90m deal for Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar, reports the Daily Mirror.

Liverpool and Arsenal have reportedly been informed that they must pay close to nine figures if they are to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco.

Liverpool and Arsenal will have to splash out at least £90million to land Thomas Lemar from Monaco. The paper says the defender, who has been highly-rated at Stamford Bridge, has caught the eye of several Championship clubs, but has been convinced to make the move to Sunderland for a relegation scrap.

But given Lemar was a target for Liverpool towards the end of the summer transfer window, it seems likely he would remain on the radar following Coutinho's exit.

"You know the problem with the transfer window", he said in a press conference when quizzed about Lemar's future at Monaco.

Mira Sorvino Vows She Will Never Work With Director Woody Allen
Actress Sorvino wrote in the Huffington Post , "I confess that at the time I worked for Woody Allen I was a naive young actress". Sorvino continues to say that Linda Ash's role in filmmaker's film was "The role of her dreams".

From Liverpool's perspective, this could be huge news if they decide to move in January for a replacement for the recently departed Philippe Coutinho. "But the month is long and many things could happen", in a subtle shift in the club's previously staunch denials that Lemar could leave.

Arsenal are said to be still monitoring the situation amid reports claiming that both City and Manchester United are trying to convince the Gunners to part ways with the Chile global this month.

In Liverpool's case, the British record deal to sell Coutinho to Barcelona has seemingly set a precedent, and Monaco are said to be of the belief that "Lemar's value has also risen". If I stayed here for 10 years, I'd want Lemar to stay with me for 10 years.

The Hammers could miss out on the 26-year-old, though, after Valencia made a £12m offer. "He has a lot of qualities, I like him a lot".
