Monaco ready to part with Arsenal and Liverpool target Thomas Lemar

Thomas Lemar looks set for a move to the Premier League this summer after AS Monaco’s Vice President admitted that the club would consider offers for the winger.

The 22-year-old was hours away from joining Arsenal on deadline day last year only for the move to break down, causing Alexis Sánchez’s potential transfer to Manchester City to be scuppered.

Liverpool are also looking to bolster their attack despite the manner in which Sadio Mané, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have been breezing past Europe’s sternest defences of late.

Reports from France suggest Monaco want in excess of £100m for Lemar and Vice President Vadim Vasilyev has encouraged potential suitors to bid for him.

Speaking to Telefoot, Vasilyev was asked about Lemar’s future and said: “Good luck to those who want him.”

When pushed on whether £110m would be enough for the Frenchman, he simply said Lemar would “cost a lot.”
