Chelsea, Arsenal target Lemar leans towards Monaco exit

Thomas Lemar is edging closer to the exit door at AS Monaco this month.

The winger has battled to recapture last season's form this term after he turned down offers on deadline day from Liverpool and Arsenal in August.

Last week, ASM vice-president Vadim Vasilyev stated: "The departures of important players are not on the agenda. We never mentioned the possibility of a departure in January with Lemar or his entourage."

However, Le 10 Sport says Lemar is leaning towards now leaving Monaco this month.

Chelsea, Barcelona and Arsenal are all keeping tabs on the situation. Though bids matching the August 31 offers of €70-90m are unlikely.
