Reported Liverpool target Lemar could leave Monaco, Jardim admits


Liverpool and Arsenal have reportedly been informed that they must pay close to nine figures if they are to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco. It happened at Liverpool.

It would appear, however, that Lemar is highly unlikely to make the move to Merseyside this month, according to French journalist Julien Laurens in a report in the Daily Express.

Comfortable playing on either flank, as an advanced playmaker, or even a central midfielder, Lemar's versatility could be a useful weapon for Jürgen Klopp or Arsène Wenger as they look to find a title-challenging blend. "Things happen that even a club like Monaco can not say no to", Jardim said.

The 21 year old French global has been one of the hottest prospects in world football and both Arsenal and Liverpool are looking at him to fill voids in their squads.

"We don't usually sell in winter, but the transfer window is open until the end of the month, and you have to prepare yourself for anything and everything", Jardim said.

"And, for Lemar, it's a risk to go to Liverpool right now in the way that, at Monaco, he would play every single game". However, 22-year-old Lemar decided that the move was happening too quickly and stayed in the principality.
