Liverpool reportedly unlikely to pursue top target

10 January 2018

Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim has suggested that Liverpool and Arsenal target Thomas Lemar could leave in the January transfer window, as quoted by The Daily Mail.

Lemar, who has been heavily linked with a move to England, nodded Monaco into an early lead, before Alassane Plea equalised after a video review.

Arsenal are visibly feeling the pressure, and have turned towards Thomas Lemar. However, despite that, the French worldwide has struggled this season but still remains a world-class prospect.

Airtel ₹448 and ₹509 prepaid plans revised: Here's what has changed
Airtel's revised plans come just days after it launched the Rs 799 plan to offer 3.5GB 4G data every day for a period of 28 days. Vodafone's recharge for Rs 509 comes with unlimited local and STD calls, free SMS, and free subscription of Vodafone Play .

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".

The versatile France global has also been linked with Liverpool, who are seeking replacements for key midfielder Philippe Coutinho after he sealed a dream move to Barcelona.

Lemar has missed a number of games for Monaco this season following shoulder and hamstring injuries, which has contributed to the side falling nine points behind league leaders Paris St Germain.

HTC Debuts Shinier, More Expensive VR Headset
Apart from that, the new HTC Vive Pro will bare two OLED displays, which makes it similar to the Vive Focus from the same company. As one of the first major VR headsets to hit shelves, the hardware inside the HTC Vive isn't its most compelling feature anymore.

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.

"It might happen. I think it won't happen now but more [likely] in the summer than now, in January, but it might still happen before I get abused by Liverpool fans".

Jardim stressed again that Monaco do not typically sell players in the January transfer window, but the coach understands a large bid for Lemar would give his side a decision to make. "But the month is long and many things could happen", in a subtle shift in the club's previously staunch denials that Lemar could leave.
