AS Monaco boss, Leonardo Jardim has claimed that Thomas Lemar could leave the club in January amid interest from a number of Premier League sides including Arsenal (via The Metro).
It’s the transfer almost every Arsenal fan wants to see completed considering the probable departure of Alexis Sanchez.
AS Monaco’s Thomas Lemar is one of the best young players in an outstanding young France team and has shone brightly in Ligue 1 over the last few years.
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.
Now, Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim has spoken about a potential transfer and isn’t exactly ruling it out.

“We do not typically sell players in the winter transfer window,” Jardim said.
“But the month is long and many things could happen.”
Let’s hope one of those things is a move to Arsenal. The Ligue 1 side are said to value their man at £92 million which would make it one of the most expensive January deals of all time. The Gunners need serious reinforcement and Lemar would offer that.
