Monaco open door for Thomas Lemar exit

Thomas Lemar came "really close" to leaving Monaco for Arsenal this summer and it could well be something the club have to revisit next year, vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has admitted.

Arsenal bid more than £90m on Deadline Day in August for the France worldwide but the deal failed to go through.

The twenty-one year old moved to Monaco from fellow French outfit Caen in the summer of 2015 and has since racked up ninety-five appearances in all competitions, scoring nineteen goals while he helped them win the Ligue 1 title last season.

His performances from midfield attracted the attention of some of the Premier League's top clubs, with both Liverpool and Arsenal making substantial offers in the final hours of the transfer window.

Monaco vice-president on Lemar: "Liverpool were really interested". "At the same time it was just too late with not enough time to really follow up on the deal and so not all the elements of the puzzle fell into place".

It will be interesting to see if Liverpool's interest in the 21-year-old returns next year, with Keita already signed and other targets sure to emerge in that time.

'Liverpool were really interested, ' Vasilyev told Sky Sports.

"It was quite close". But it was Arsenal that was really close to finalising deal. He's very important to our team.

"I'm very happy he stayed with us", he added.

"Definitely next summer will be something to look at, although you know in football there are no guarantees".

Arsenal and Tottenham target Thomas Lemar is available.at a price. "I think it would be fair to say Thomas will have a fair chance to exit next year".

"He's one of the key players in our squad, a very regular player", said Vasilyev.

January is unlikely to be the right time for Fabinho, however, with Monaco hopeful of keeping hold of him until the end of the season.

"We plan and when it's the last days it's very hard".

'We are very happy that we managed to keep him.

That is because, despite Lemar's likely transfer, another one of the clubs best players is set to leave but in January.
