Jardim braced for Lemar bids

Lemar emerged as one of the hottest young attacking talents in European football after providing 14 goals and 17 assists to help fire Monaco to the Ligue 1 title last season.

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 global as replacements for Philippe Coutinho and Alexis Sanchez respectively.

The Daily Mirror reports that Arsenal have made Thomas Lemar their No. 1 target if Alexis Sanchez leaves the club.

But with the scoring form of Liverpool's trio, especially Salah who has 17 goals so far at 0.96 per 90, Lemar to Liverpool could be a deal worth doing.

Arsenal and Chelsea have been given a boost in their pursuits of AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar with reports suggesting Liverpool are not interested in signing the Frenchman this month.

Arsenal have been following the 22-year-old for some time and failed to land their man with a massive £92 million bid on deadline day last year. Manchester City still hope to strike a deal for Alexis Sanchez this month after their summer deadline day move collapsed, a development that would once again see Arsenal turn to Lemar as a replacement for the Chile global, Saturday's report from L'Equipe added.

In Liverpool's case, the British record deal to sell Coutinho to Barcelona has seemingly set a precedent, and Monaco are said to be of the belief that "Lemar's value has also risen".

Liverpool will reportedly not move for Lemar this month.

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

Liverpool have already spent a sizeable chunk of any funds by signing Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in a £75 million deal, and the desire to replace Coutinho adequately could also take big investment.
