Monaco ready to listen to Lemar offers


Monaco will listen to offers for Thomas Lemar this Summer.

Their vice-president, Vadim Vasilyev, has revealed that the Ligue 1 club are ready to let the France international leave – provided an acceptable offer is made.

When asked if they would consider letting the twenty-two year old move on at the end of the campaign by Telefoot, he nodded and said “Good luck to those who want him.”

It is claimed, however, that they are looking to recoup around £100m for their star man and that could see interest diminish as it would price him out of a move to many clubs.

Liverpool are likely to be one of the clubs who would look elsewhere should Monaco drive the asking fee up too high – and that is despite having plenty of cash to spend after selling Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for around £145m back in January.

Lemar himself recently admitted his disappointment at seeing bids from other clubs, reportedly including Liverpool and Arsenal, rejected by his club during transfer windows.

“I’m not going to hide it, I was a little disappointed. I try not to think about it.” he said.

“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.” he finished.

He will be hoping that Jurgen Klopp remains keen on bringing him to Anfield after seeing the German manager steer his team to the last four in the Champions League.
