Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Tiemoue Bakayoko have all left the club for fees totalling around £130 million while Fabinho and Kylian Mbappe are expected to depart to join Paris Saint Germain this month.
And Wenger told the London Evening Standard: “[A deal for Lemar] is dead because Monaco has closed the door. They are still on cases like Mbappe and Fabinho. They've already lost Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Bakayoko, so Monaco is at a stage where they have closed the door. We have the numbers, we have the quality to deal with that."
