Liverpool and Arsenal are set to renew their interest in Thomas Lemar when the January transfer window opens.
Both clubs were keen on the forward in the January transfer window but failed to sign him.
Arsenal in particular had several bids rejected by Monaco who initially didn’t want to sell, only for them to accept a £92m bid on deadline day but the player had no interest in moving so late in the transfer window.
According to the Mirror, Arsenal are going to renew their interest in Lemar when the transfer window opens in January.
With Alexis Sanchez’s future still unresolved, Arsenal known they run the risk of losing the midfielder in January and have begun to put measures in place to bring in a replacement.
Lemar has long been touted as a replacement for Sanchez, so it isn’t surprising that he is under consideration.
However, it remains to be seen whether Monaco would want to lose their star man in the middle of the season. Should they be receptive to a sale, Liverpool are expected to provide stiff competition for his signature.
The Reds apparently see him as a replacement for Coutinho who is being linked with a move to Barcelona.
