  • Thomas Lemar

Monaco head coach Leonardo Jardim hints that players could be sold this month amid reports that Liverpool are interested in Thomas Lemar.

According to David Anderson of the Mirror, Liverpool and Arsenal will have to start their bidding for Lemar at £90m to have any chance of completing a deal.

Arsenal attempted to sign Lemar last summer, failing with a bid late in the transfer window, and remain keen on the France global, while Liverpool have been linked following the sale of Philippe Coutinho.

The Razer Phone Can Replace Your Laptop with Project Linda
As you might imagine, Razer doesn't have an estimated price or release date as Project Linda is still very much a concept device. It sports a 13.3-inch display , with a Quad HD resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate which is also available on the Razer Phone .

The Mirror claim that Arsenal had a £90m bid accepted on deadline day as they looked to find a replacement for Man City-bound Alexis Sanchez but Lemar felt it was too late to push through a move so made a decision to stay at Monaco.

Lemar is one of the best young midfielders in Europe and will certainly enhance the quality of the current Liverpool midfield.

Jardim's comments regarding potential winter sales may offer Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hope regarding his chances of landing France global Lemar, particularly with Monaco out of the UEFA Champions League.

Despite recently breaking the Saints' franchise record for receptions in a season, Thomas flies under the radar. Payton, who is 6-4 in the playoffs as Saints coach, is trying to maintain a fresh approach as well.

But given Lemar was a target for Liverpool towards the end of the summer transfer window, it seems likely he would remain on the radar following Coutinho's exit.

Arsenal have been following the 22-year-old for some time and failed to land their man with a massive £92 million bid on deadline day last year.

"We are not used to selling in the winter, but the transfer window lasts until the end of the month", the Venezuelan manager added.

Vegas Play of the Day: Falcons at Rams
Devonta Freeman scored on a 3-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and led the Falcons' ground game with 66 yards. For a guy who had his size, he had exceptional ability to put his foot in the ground and accelerate out.

Lemar would be a natural replacement for Coutinho but Liverpool FC could be forced to pay over the odds for the talented France attacker given Monaco will be aware of the Reds' inflated transfer budget.
