Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has admitted that the club will consider offers for Arsenal and Liverpool target Thomas Lemar this summer.
The 22-year-old is a player with much potential and there have been suggestions that Monaco want a fee of £104million for him, with Arsenal and Liverpool amongst his potential destinations, according to Telefoot.
Lemar, who can play on either flank or as an attacking midfielder, was heavily linked with Arsenal last summer only for the Gunners to have a late bid rejected.
Vasilyev told Telefoot: ‘Good luck to those who want him.’
Lemar hasn’t been prolific for Monaco this season – he has only found the net twice in Ligue 1 – but he has managed to provide eight assists.
It is anticipated that Lemar will have an important part to play for France at this summer’s World Cup and he scored in the defeat to Colombia in a friendly last month.
Lemar, who possesses excellent technique, is seen as a potential replacement for Philippe Coutinho at Liverpool after the midfielder joined Barcelona in January.
Arsenal would also benefit hugely from signing Lemar, but he may be hesitant to join if Arsene Wenger’s side fail to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.
