Arsenal in battle with Liverpool for £58.5m-rated prodigy

The Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool both tried to land AS Monaco’s Thomas Lemar in the previous transfer window and the pair are reportedly still interested in Monaco winger but they’ll now face rivalry for his signature.

According to an article from James Tucker of British daily broadsheet newspaper The Telegraph, Manchester City are also interested in signing the French international as Pep Guardiola looks to take his team to the next level.

The Citizens have a good relationship with Les Monegasques having signed Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy from them for good money the previous summer and it seems like they’re ready to do business with the French club once again.

The reigning Ligue 1 champions rate Lemar at around £90m which could be a stumbling barrier for all interested parties, but if AS Monaco are willing to hold talks, then all three Premier League clubs will be interested.

It was widely reported that Thomas wanted to join The Reds earlier in the year but The Gunners and Manchester City will be hoping he has a change of heart.
