Arsenal and Liverpool target could leave Monaco - boss

Personally, I would prefer to sign Lemar this month and ensure that the Reds have the best possible opportunity to achieve success in the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Champions League.

Jardim refused to rule out Lemar leaving the club this month when speaking to reporters.

"You know the problem with the transfer window", he said in a press conference when quizzed about Lemar's future at Monaco. Everything can change. The things I can say today are not true tomorrow.

Philippe Coutinho, an integral part of the Liverpool's fabulous four, consisting the lethal trio of Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino, left England to complete his dream move to La Liga giants Barcelona.

Lemar is a regular first-team member of both Monaco and France National Team, and it is natural that The Monegasques would be looking for a high figure to renounce his services.

"But the thing is as well, as much as I would would love him to go to Liverpool because I think he would suit this team perfectly, he can play in different positions, he's so good on set-pieces, that left foot is wonderful, I think Klopp would make him even more world-class than he already is in many ways, there's a couple of things".

"I want him to stay for longer because he's a very important player for us".

After all, Monaco showed they were willing to cash in on their brightest stars for the right price in the summer, with Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Benjamin Mendy all moving on.

The Monaco sensation has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in recent months.

With Coutinho gone and Arsenal heavily reliant on Özil to provide creativity, Lemar's invention from any attacking position would give either side an added dimension to their play.

Arsenal appeared to show the most serious interest in the forward last summer, and Liverpool may not have a clear run at the midfielder as a result. Arguably their need to sign the player would outstrip Liverpool's if both of those players were to leave the Emirates Stadium.
