Liverpool clear to complete £92m transfer of world-class winger

Monaco have cleared the path for Thomas Lemar to leave Monaco this summer after the winger issued a come-and-get-me plea to Arsenal and Liverpool.

The Gunners saw a £92million deal for the French ace fall through at the end of last summer’s transfer window, but Arsene Wenger remains interested in signing the forward.

However, Liverpool are also keen and Lemar recently revealed that he was ‘disappointed’ not to secure a transfer to the Premier League.

Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyev admitted he was happy for Lemar to depart, although the Ligue 1 giants would command a high fee for the 22-year-old.

And he invited clubs to bid for the France international by telling Telefoot: ‘Good luck to those who want him.’ Lemar had previously said of failed bids from Liverpool and Arsenal: ‘I’m not going to hide it, I was a little disappointed. I try not to think about it.

‘I’ve kept working so that these clubs come back during the next transfer window. ‘My future? I am open to everything. I love all the different leagues.’
