Thomas Lemar shows Arsenal what they're missing with absolute worldie for France

Transfer News Watch Naby Keita Liverpool’s New £48 Million SigningMore

Monaco were reportedly willing to accept it but Lemar went cold on the idea as he would prefer to continue playing in the Champions League.

Liverpool's earlier offer of £75M is once again the highest standing bid for the player, and Jürgen Klopp's side are believed to have a deal in place with the player and a medical team standing by to push the deal through before the deadline should a fee be agreed.

And to top it all off, he basically stole the goal off Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette.

Much of these reports began to gather pace as pictures emerged on social media of the Arsenal manager and chief executive Ivan Gazidis in Nice in June.

Athletico Madrid attempted to bring Lemar to Spain last summer, but had a bid of £26 million rejected by AS Monaco; something Arsenal are fully aware of as they prepare negotiations this year.

Spanish journalist Guillem Balague has revealed that Arsenal have pulled out of their pursuit of Thomas Lemar as they do not have sufficient time to finalise a club-record £92m move.

But what will worry some Arsenal fans is whether this approach for Lemar signals the end of Alexis Sanchez's time at the club.

Lemar proved the Premier League clubs should have gone all out to sign him as he scored another goal late on.

The teenager joins the likes of Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Tiemoue Bakayoko in leaving during a painful window for the Ligue 1 champions, who must now hope Lemar bucks the trend and stays put in the principality.
