Liverpool not planning January offer for Arsenal target Thomas Lemar

The January transfer window is now open so clubs are working hard trying to strengthen their squads for the second half of the season and put deals in place for the summer.

Thomas Lemar is keen on joining Liverpool despite interest from Arsenal and Chelsea as Jurgen Klopp looks to land the Monaco attacker this month, according to the Mirror.

"One is that Monaco are the boss in terms of selling players and when to sell the players and how to sell the players and at which price".

Lemar is regarded as one of the most exciting young midfielders to have emerged out of France in recent years, thanks largely due to his exploits for Monaco last season.

Lemar has been tipped as a potential replacement for Philippe Coutinho at Anfield, while the Reds are also looking at Schalke's Leon Goretzka and Dortmund's Christian Pulisic.

"We do not typically sell players in the winter transfer window", Jardim said.

The Mirror claim that Arsenal had a £90m bid accepted on deadline day as they looked to find a replacement for Man City-bound Alexis Sanchez but Lemar felt it was too late to push through a move so chose to stay at Monaco.

The report suggests that Arsenal are prepared to cash in on Sanchez instead of losing him for free in the coming summer transfer window, and will look to sell him for around £30 million. However, 22-year-old Lemar decided that the move was happening too quickly and stayed in the principality.

Liverpool will reportedly not move for Lemar this month. "But the month is long and many things could happen", in a subtle shift in the club's previously staunch denials that Lemar could leave.

Liverpool have already spent a sizeable chunk of any funds by signing Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in a £75 million deal, and the desire to replace Coutinho adequately could also take big investment.
