Arsenal's €90M deadline day offer was enough to get Monaco to agree a sale, but Lemar was unconvinced by the Gunners and chose instead to remain at Monaco in the hopes of a better move materializing in the future.

The France global has been on the radar of both Premier League clubs since the summer, coming particularly close to joining the Gunners in a deadline-day move. With surging interest of the top clubs in their prized possession, Monaco have made a decision to encash big on Lemar and have demanded a whopping £90 million for his services.
The article claims that Liverpool FC were keen on signing Lemar in the summer but did not table an official bid for the France global. But the paper says Liverpool are considering paying a premium on top of the fee to bring him in during the January transfer window instead.
