But Arsene Wenger’s side pulled out of the deal for Lemar as they believed that there wasn’t enough time to complete the transfer.
Liverpool had also targeted a late move for Lemar and reports claimed that the 21-year-old snubbed Arsenal in favour of a move to Anfield.
Lemar scored twice in France’s 4-0 win over Netherlands on Thursday evening and after the match, the midfielder stressed that he is focused on the season ahead with Monaco.
‘I am a Monaco player and I am very happy there,’ he told Canal Plus.
‘Now I am going to go and have a good season with my club, try to keep progressing and advancing in my career.’ SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
