Thomas Lemar: 5 things to know about the Arsenal and Liverpool target

Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim has admitted that Arsenal and Liverpool target Thomas Lemar could leave in January.

"Right now, Monaco haven't received any offers from Liverpool or Arsenal or no-one else for Thomas Lemar".

According to David Anderson of the Daily Mirror, the two Premier League sides are seriously interested in the France global, who is valued at around £90 million by his club.

Lemar had been close to a move to the Gunners in the summer, with Monaco having accepted a £92m bid, only for the player to turn down a move. With surging interest of the top clubs in their prized possession, Monaco have made a decision to encash big on Lemar and have demanded a whopping £90 million for his services.

However, with Liverpool losing Philippe Coutinho after a long and drawn out battle with Barcelona and Arsenal potentially seeing both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil leave the club, both clubs could use Thomas Lemar to fill the gaps.

The Liverpool striker has had to make do with a bit-part role this season and though the likes of Southampton and West Ham United are said to be sniffing around, Tuttosport claim Sturridge is interested by Internazionale.

"You know the problem with the transfer window", he said in a press conference when quizzed about Lemar's future at Monaco.

"In the last two transfer windows, last summer and this winter, the numbers have gone up enormously".

The Frenchman will be even more furious if he is beaten to the punch by Liverpool this month, however, as Jurgen Klopp earmarks Lemar as the man to take Coutinho's place in his pacy attacking Reds side. "Players like Keita (Balde), Jovetic, Tielemans are all players signed in the knowledge that Lemar will go at some point", Brassell told the Liverpool Echo. If I stay here for 10 years I want Lemar to stay with me for 10 years. I wouldn't rule it out, but I don't see him beating down their door saying "it's now or never" because I don't think it is.
