Monaco chief Vasilyev warns Arsenal, Liverpool off Lemar

AS Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev insists they're under no pressure to sell Thomas Lemar.

Arsenal and Liverpool made late bids for the France midfielder in August – and now Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Barcelona have entered the race for the €100m-rated player (£88m).

Despite being knocked out of the Champions League, Vasilyev said Lemar and Fabinho will not be sold next month with Monaco second in the French league.

He said, “The sales of important players is not on the agenda.

"We have never spoken (to Lemar or his entourage) about the possibility of a January departure."
