Arsenal is set to lose out on their major transfer target Thomas Lemar, as The Independent reports that he is set to snub the Gunners in favour of a move to Liverpool.
Both clubs have renewed their interest in the winger following failed moves in the summer, and they are both looking to complete a January deal if a player leaves each of the clubs.
Arsenal came close to signing him on deadline day of last summer, which would have seen Alexis Sanchez move to Manchester City, but AS Monaco pulled out at the last minute.
Liverpool on the other hand wanted to sign Lemar when it looked likely that Phillipe Coutinho was going to join Barcelona, but put a stop to their interest when the Spanish side’s attempts came to an end.
Jurgen Klopp is a long term admirer of the £89 million rated midfielder and feels confident he can convince him to join Liverpool in January.
The Express believe the Reds will need to offer around £90 million for Monaco to even consider doing business. judging by their £75 million outlay for defender Virgil Van Dijk, I don’t see them being able to fork out another £90 million for one player, so it is safe to say Arsenal still has a chance at winning this one.
