Monaco set asking price for Arsenal and Liverpool target Thomas Lemar

Both Arsenal and Liverpool made bids for Lemar during the final week of the summer transfer window with the Gunners coming close to clinching a €100m (£90m) deal, only for the move to fall through at the eleventh hour.

But, several clubs still remain interested in the 22-year-old, with Arsenal and Liverpool, in particular, keen on signing him.

Arsenal have moved Thomas Lemar back to the top of their wanted list and are prepared to test Monaco's resolve not to sell their star forward in January, says the Mirror.

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.

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

Her blog on the drug-laced drinks read: "Ringing in 2018 with a CBD-spiked cocktail intrigued many of us at Goop ". After months of speculation, Academy Award victor Gwyneth Paltrow has confirmed her engagement to producer.

The former were willing to sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City this summer if they could get Lemar, but the deal fell through.

Now, Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim has spoken about a potential transfer and isn't exactly ruling it out.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday afternoon, the 43-year-old Portuguese said "we are not used to selling in the winter". "The expectation still remains that Lemar will remain in Monaco beyond this month's deadline".

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.

Liverpool have already spent a sizeable chunk of any funds by signing Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in a £75 million deal, and the desire to replace Coutinho adequately could also take big investment.
