It’s understood the Gunners are ready to make another offer for Lemar in the new year, but Arsene Wenger will come up against stiff competition from both Liverpool and Chelsea.
The Independent suggest the France midfielder has identified Liverpool as his first choice destination despite Arsenal’s obvious interest ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
It’s claimed Lemar could cost as much as £90m, with Monaco desperate for compensation from losing another of their top stars.
Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy and Tiemoue Bakayoko all completed high-profile moves to England in the summer and it appears their former team-mate is destined to join them in the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp is determined to bring midfield reinforcements to Anfield as Barcelona continue their pursuit of Philippe Coutinho.
Asked about his Liverpool future, Coutinho recently told Sky Sports: ‘I always say the same thing. I try to enjoy the moment. ‘
‘I like to play football and, every time when I go on the pitch, I try my best.’
