Monaco star Thomas Lemar has revealed that he is ‘open to all offers’ this summer amid reported interest from Arsenal and Liverpool.
Arsenal had an offer for Lemar rejected on transfer deadline day in August, but the France international, who can play as a left winger or an attacking midfielder, has continued to be linked with a switch to the Emirates Stadium.
As well as the Gunners and Liverpool, other major clubs, including Manchester City, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, are also monitoring the situation of the £90million-rated Lemar, who is refusing to rule out any option regarding his future.
Asked about his feelings on a move to the Emirates falling through last summer, Lemar told Telefoot: ‘Regrets? Maybe. I was a little disappointed.
‘Once it’s over, it’s over, so do not think about it.
‘I will keep working hard so these clubs will eventually come back in the next transfer window. I am open to all offers. I am a football player, I like football. I do not close any door.’
It is clear to see why there is such strong interest in Lemar, with the 22-year-old possessing pace and flair in abundance.
Lemar was amongst the scorers as France were beaten 3-2 by Colombia in a friendly on Friday and is set to play a significant part for his country at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
This season Lemar has found the net twice in Ligue 1 for Monaco, while he has registered eight assists.
Monaco are currently 17 points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain in the Ligue 1 table and that could help persuade Lemar to leave the club.
