Jardim: Monaco could sell Arsenal Chelsea & Liverpool target - FCNaija

Ligue 1 By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 09/01/2018

Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim reveals that the Ligue 1 holders could sell Arsenal Chelsa and Liverpool target in the January transfer window.

Vice-president Vadim Vasilyev and Jardim have previously been clear that Lemar and other Monaco stars including Fabinho will not be allowed to leave mid-season after losing the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva, and Benjamin Mendy in the summer.

Gunners and Reds have long been linked with 22-year-old winger after his stunning form last term piqued their interest, and both are plotting moves for the France international as replacements Arsenal wantaway star Alexis Sanchez and Barcelona new signing Philippe Coutinho respectively.

The 43-year-old Portuguese Jardim stressed again that Monaco do not typically sell players in the January transfer window, but the coach understands a large bid for Lemar would give his side a decision to make.

"We are not used to selling in the winter," Jardim told reporters on Monday.

"But the transfer window lasts until the end of the month and many things can happen."

It’s believed Monaco value Lemar at around £92m and Arsenal will face competition from Chelsea and Liverpool to sign the winger.
