Thomas Lemar "very happy" at AS Monaco following Arsenal pursuit

Thomas Lemar

A £92 million offer for Thomas Lemar arrived far too late and Arsenal were never going to be able to match PSG's financial clout when it came to the pursuit of Kylian Mbappe.

This big move in the market is linked to Arsenal's possible sale of Alexis Sanchez.

Shortly after rejecting Arsenal's advances, the attacking midfielder rubbed salt into the wound by producing a stunning two-goal performance in Les Bleus' 4-0 World Cup qualifying win over Netherlands.

Elsewhere, Italian website Ilbianconero.com (h/t Calciomercato.com) reported Juventus made a final attempt to sign Can on Thursday, but it looks as though both parties will settle for a free transfer next summer.

However, if he chooses to call time on his spell at Monaco, England seems to be his next destination with Liverpool and Arsenal in hot pursuit of the player.


But the Englishman has already joined Liverpool and the 28-year-old is set to move to Manchester.

Despite that, L'Equipe make it very clear AS Monaco's Lemar was eyeing a move to Liverpool. "I'm very happy to be joining a strong squad, with big players who had a brilliant season previous year", he added.

The Gunners saw their £92m bid accepted on Thursday afternoon, a move prompted by Manchester City improving their offer to sign Alexis Sanchez.

"No games now so I hope you can enjoy the next five or six days with all the rumours and all that stuff". I don't get carried away, even if there is the transfer window.

However, Lemar opted against a last-minute move to Arsenal with some reports suggesting the France starlet was holding out for a move to Liverpool.
