Liverpool and Arsenal target Lemar issues come-and-get-me plea

The France international missed out on a move to the Premier League last summer but he hasn’t given up hope of earning a similar switch this time around.

The 22-year-old has nine caps for France.

MONACO STAR THOMAS Lemar hopes Liverpool and Arsenal renew their interest in signing him after admitting he was “disappointed” at missing out on a move.

Arsenal saw a series of bids rejected for the France international last summer , and potentially would have signed him on deadline day had Alexis Sanchez’s move to Manchester City not fallen through.

The 22-year-old was also the subject of a £70 million offer from Liverpool and continues to be linked with the Reds as Jurgen Klopp aims to find a long-term replacement for Philippe Coutinho following the Brazilian’s move to Barcelona.

Lemar admits it was something of a blow not to move to the Premier League but hopes to receive new offers at the end of the season.

Asked if he had any regrets about being denied a transfer, he told Telefoot : “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 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.”

Lemar has made 29 appearances in all competitions in 2017-18, scoring three goals.

He impressed for France in the first half of their 3-2 friendly defeat to Colombia on Friday, playing a key part in Olivier Giroud’s opening goal before scoring his side’s second.
