Thomas Lemar Explains Decision to Reject £ 92 Million Move to Arsenal

Monaco winger Thomas Lemar says that he is extremely happy to remain at the French club after watching his £ 92 million move to Arsenal collapse on the transfer deadline day.

The French winger has been a target for Arsenal throughout the summer, but the gunners did not make a solid bid until the transfer deadline day. Barcelona and Liverpool had been showing plenty of interest in the player throughout the summer, but it was the latter who came in with official offer. Liverpool came up with an offer valued at around £ 65 million, but it was rejected by Monaco.

The French outfit have already sold several of their stars over the summer, and were not ready to lose Lemar. However, the £ 92 million offer from Arsenal proved enticing and it was accepted by Monaco. This was seen as a key move as it would have meant Alexis Sanchez moving to a Manchester City in at £ 60 million deal. However, Thomas Lemar decided to turn down the opportunity to sign for the gunners at the last moment. Continue reading Thomas Lemar Explains Decision to Reject £ 92 Million Move to Arsenal
