Leonardo Jardim Hints Liverpool Target Thomas Lemar Could Leave in January

10 January 2018

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

Arsenal are reportedly set to step up their pursuit of Thomas Lemar this month, with Alexis Sanchez inching closer to a move to Manchester City.

According to The Daily Mail, Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in signing Lemar from Monaco this month.

Arsenal are visibly feeling the pressure, and have turned towards Thomas Lemar.

Israel's government last week approved a plan which will set aside $ 72 million to fighting the campaign to boycott it. Other than BDS South Africa and BDS Chile, the groups named on the list are located in Europe and North America.

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.

Speaking to the media this week, Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim refused to rule out a sale this transfer window. 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 worldwide, Saturday's report from L'Equipe added.

"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.

Coutinho bagging a whopping £142 million from Barcelona has motivated Monaco to sell their stalwart for a maximum price as they feel they can squeeze a good amount from the Lemar deal. 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.
