Monaco must 'prepare' for Thomas Lemar interest - Leonardo Jardim

Thomas Lemar

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

Of course, Liverpool are adamant they won't be held to ransom over targets in the winter window if it looks like a club is looking to take advantage of the fact that the Reds are cash heavy after the £146 million sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

Lemar would be a natural replacement for Coutinho but Liverpool FC could be forced to pay over the odds for the talented France attacker given Monaco will be aware of the Reds' inflated transfer budget.

Liverpool were reported as being favourites to win the battle for Lemar's signature but bookmakers rate Arsenal as equally likely to complete the massive deal, with odds of 4/1 for it to happen.

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. He rose to prominence by playing a supporting role in the attack alongside Kylian Mbappe and Radamel Falcao in Monaco's title-winning last season.




"So for Monaco, and I'm not saying they might still sell him now, but for them it would make no sense whatsoever to do so and that's why they're saying, one and off the record: "We don't usually sell in January, especially not our big players".

Liverpool will reportedly not move for Lemar this month.

"You come to Liverpool..." Thomas Lemar fits the bill, he is one of the most sought-after talents in Europe, and has the potential to become one of the worlds greats.

The France defender has been just a bit-part player at the Emirates under boss Arsene Wenger this season.
