Liverpool face continued Thomas Lemar fight as Arsene Wenger confirms interest

Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal bid €100 million for Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar on deadline day and says the club will try to sign the France global again.

Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez has made his first comments since failing to move to Manchester City, taking to Instagram to post cryptic messages.

After bringing him to London earlier in the year, giving him a tour of the training ground, and otherwise sweet-talking him, Arsenal lodged a £45 million bid for Thomas Lemar's services with Monaco in late July.

The report continues by saying that Zinedine Zidane didn't think that Real needed to add Sanchez to their ranks but they may look into signing him for free in the summer.

Lemar scored twice for France against the Netherlands on Thursday and revealed after the game that he is "very happy" to remain at Ligue 1 champions Monaco.

As it turns out, neither deal happened, but Arsenal did go so far as to lodge a €100m (£92m) bid for Lemar, which Monaco accepted, but the player rejected the move, opting to stay at Monaco.

"It was not very close, it's very hard for me to speak about that because what I want now is the player to focus on his career, on his season and Arsenal", he added.

"Your interest is always to perform", he told beIN SPORTS.

"I wanted him too, but €180m is too much for us".

"It was not very close and it's very hard for me to speak about that because what I want from the player now is to focus on his career, on his season and on Arsenal Football Club".
