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

Liverpool's pursuit of Thomas Lemar has been given a major boost after AS Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim admitted that the club could be open to doing business during the ongoing January transfer window.

Lemar has been tipped as a potential replacement for Philippe Coutinho at Anfield, while the Reds are also looking at Schalke's Leon Goretzka and Dortmund's Christian Pulisic.

Monaco's Thomas Lemar is one of the best young players in an outstanding young France team and has shone brightly in Ligue 1 over the last few years.

Lemar had been close to making a switch to the Premier League with Arsenal last summer as Arsene Wenger looked to sign the £90m-rated forward to replace Manchester City-bound Sanchez.

Lemar, who has been heavily linked with a move to England, nodded Monaco into an early lead, before Alassane Plea equalised after a video review.

Let's hope one of those things is a move to Arsenal.

Jardim stressed again that Monaco do not typically sell players in the January transfer window, but the coach understands a large bid for Lemar would give his side a decision to make.

When fit, the youngster has made an impact with two goals and three assists in 13 appearances, although he was unable to prevent Monaco from finishing bottom of their group in the Champions League this 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".
