Spanish journalist provides update on Arsenal's record move for Lemar

Could Thomas Lemar be on his way to Liverpool this week

Report in England suggested that Liverpool had moved ahead of Arsenal in the race to sign Lemar on Wednesday as Jurgen Klopp looked to further bolster his attacking options.

Both players were instrumental in winning the French title with Monaco last season, their first league win since 2000.

The remaining £55M is believed to be funded by the departure of Alexis Sanchez, with a deal reportedly in place with Manchester City. "I was focused on my match, that was all that mattered for me", added the winger who still has three years to run on his contract at the Stade Louis II.

"I cannot tell you everything that happened because after you decide to let a player of that calibre go, you need to replace him because nobody would understand that you let the player go", he said.

Manager Arsene Wenger has made it clear all summer that Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will not leave the club.


"The player has chosen to stay in Monaco", Wenger told beIN Sports.

Thomas Lemar wants to join Liverpool, despite Arsenal having a bid for his services accepted, it has been claimed.

"Now I'm going to make a good season with my club, to try to progress and move forward in my career with Monaco".

However, it is highly unlikely that the Reds will sell this summer after failing to sign a replacement in the form of Thomas Lemar.

'They've already lost Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Tiemoue Bakayoko, so Monaco is at a stage where they have closed the door'.
