Arsene Wenger is considering his future at Arsenal ahead of next season
Liverpool and Arsenal have been given fresh hope in their pursuit of Thomas Lemar with AS Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim suggesting that the Ligue 1 side won't be able to "say no" if a insane money offer arrives during the current January transfer window.
"Right now, Monaco haven't received any offers from Liverpool or Arsenal or no-one else for Thomas Lemar".
The Frenchman almost joined the Gunners in the summer transfer window but a late move on deadline day fell through.
"Things happen that even a club like Monaco can not say no to".
The Liverpool striker has had to make do with a bit-part role this season and though the likes of Southampton and West Ham United are said to be sniffing around, Tuttosportclaim Sturridge is interested by Internazionale.
From Liverpool's perspective, this could be huge news if they decide to move in January for a replacement for the recently departed Philippe Coutinho.
"But the transfer window lasts until the end of the month and many things can happen".
Of course, we're all well aware that Jurgen Klopp could hold off from signing a Lemar or a Riyad Mahrez this month and wait to get his man in the summer in what he would view as the flawless circumstances.
However, Jardim added: "If I stayed here for 10 years, I'd want Lemar to stay with me for 10 years".
Lemar was a target for Liverpool back in the summer transfer window as well.
And according to the Mirror, Monaco would be seeking an eye-watering fee of at least £90 million if they were to sell the 22-year-old. "He has a lot of qualities, I like him a lot".
