Thomas Lemar: Arsenal and Liverpool handed huge boost in race for Monaco star

Lemar’s current deal is due to expire in 2020 but according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, the forward has turned down a contract extension with the Ligue 1 outfit.

Arsenal lined up the 22-year-old last summer as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez who looked set to join Manchester City.

But the Gunners famously failed with a deadline day bid of £90m.

Liverpool received £142m from Philippe Coutinho’s sale to Barcelona last month and were also believed to be targeting the French star as a replacement.

Speculation has cooled in recent weeks but now that Lemar has seemingly made himself available again, a host of clubs will be lining up to secure his signature.
