Liverpool Bow Out of Race For Arsenal Target Thomas Lemar


Given that the Spanish transfer window does not close until 1st September, it will allow Liverpool to know whether they have Lemar before agreeing to let Coutinho go the next day.

Alexandre Lacazette has got Arsenal fans excited with a social media post being interpreted as a transfer message regarding Thomas Lemar. A bid, in fact, of £92M, or €100M-the fee Monaco have signalled all along that they are seeking.

There is also little certainty over whether Arsenal pulled out of the deal due to actually not having time to complete the deal or if it was because of Lemar signalling he was not open to the move.

Per 90 minutes, the Frenchman also achieved more successful take ons (59%) than the likes of Sadio Mane (56%), Leroy Sane (56%) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (52%) last season.

After claims from England that the Gunners had offered €100m for the French forward, which was apparently accepted before Wenger made a decision to pull out because of a lack of time to get a deal done, SFR Sport in France reveal Liverpool's latest bid.

The Gunners defender played on and Arsene Wenger will be hoping it is not as serious as it initially looked.

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

But with Arsenal's recent acquisition of Lacazette, it is thought that Alexis will be moved back on to the wing if he stays; hence why the clash between himself and Lemar would occur.
