  • Thomas Lemar

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

According to the Daily Mail, Premier League sides Arsenal and Liverpool are both reportedly interested in the French global.

Monaco head coach Leonardo Jardim has admitted the club could struggle to keep hold of Thomas Lemar during the January transfer window.

According to David Anderson of the Mirror, Liverpool and Arsenal will have to start their bidding for Lemar at £90m to have any chance of completing a deal.

Laurens told BBC Radio 5 Live's Euro Leagues Football Show: "I love it how for all Liverpool fans that it's a given that Lemar is going to come and replace Coutinho as early as this month".

The 21 year old French global has been one of the hottest prospects in world football and both Arsenal and Liverpool are looking at him to fill voids in their squads.

The Reds and Gunners have always been linked with Lemar after his stunning form last term piqued their interest, and both are plotting moves for the France worldwide as replacements for Philippe Coutinho and Alexis Sanchez respectively. And for them it makes no sense whatsoever to let Lemar go now, six months before a World Cup that he can potentially win with France and be the star of the World Cup and, like James [Horncastle] said, big clubs respond very well to who is the big star of the World Cup. "We wait until the summer because we feel that's not the right time for us to sell".

The French midfielder - who nearly moved to the Gunners on the summer deadline day - nodded home after just three minutes on the French Riviera.

Lemar is one of the best young midfielders in Europe and will certainly enhance the quality of the current Liverpool midfield.

If Arsenal or Liverpool want to land the highly talented forward this month then they may have to splash out £90 million or more.
