Monaco tell Liverpool and Arsenal to forget about signing Thomas Lemar in January

Liverpool and Arsenal have been told to wait if they want to sign Monaco star Thomas Lemar.

Both Premier League clubs have made their interest in the 22-year-old known, but Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyev insists Lemar will not be sold in this transfer window.

With Wednesday’s deadline fast approaching, it seems both Liverpool and Arsenal will have to wait until the summer if they still wish to sign the France international.

“He will stay at Monaco until the end of the season 100 per cent,” Vasilyev told RMC.

“If Liverpool or Arsenal come with a big offer before the end of the market? This is not relevant.

“We will say ‘no’ because the objectives are clear. Without important players like Lemar, we will not succeed.”
