Thomas Lemar Talks Failed Move, Emre Can Rumours

Arsenal want Sergio Aguero after being offered swap deal for Alexis Sanchez

French star Thomas Lemar has added insult to the injury of refusing a move to Arsenal on transfer deadline day.

The 21-year-old, who reports suggest would prefer a move to Liverpool, is now discussing personal terms with the North London club.

It was a blow not to see Thomas Lemar finalising his move to Arsenal.

Amid the transfer chaos, Lemar - also a target for Liverpool according to reports - scored a stunning goal in France's 4-0 rout of 10-man Netherlands in World Cup qualifying.

The Gunners' late move for young Monaco prospect Lemar fell through after they insisted there was not enough time left to complete the deal.

'I am a Monaco player and I am very happy there, ' he told Canal Plus. You have to respect what really happens on the negotiation side.

"I know we live in the era of transparency but at some stage, to respect everybody you have to not talk too much about that".

Meanwhile the Gunners were ready to spend a whopping £90m on Lemar - if they could shift Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City for their asking price of £70m.

The Monaco star's rebuttal means that Arsenal pulled out of a deal to sell Chile global Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City in a £70m deal on deadline day.

The Belgian worldwide Origi has managed 12 Premier League goals from two full seasons with the Merseyside club and they are said to be willing to let him go.

The Reds had an initial bid of £65 million rejected for Lemar but are set to return with an improved offer of £75 million, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.

"I'm not looking forward to it but it's part of the game".
