Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco have cleared the path for French winger Thomas Lemar to leave the club this summer after he issued a come-and-get-me plea to Liverpool and Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger’s side saw a £92million deal for the Ligue 1 giants ace fall through at the end of last seasons transfer window. However, Frenchman remains interested in signing of 22-year-old forward.

However, the Merseyside Reds are also keen and Lemar recently revealed that he was ‘disappointed not to secure a move to England during the last season’s summer transfer window.

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev revealed that he was happy for 22-year-old to depart, although the Ligue 1 giants would command a high fee for his signature.

And he invited clubs to bid for the 22-year-old forward by telling Telefoot: ‘Good luck to those who want him.”

Lemar had previously said of failed bids from Arsenal and Liverpool: ‘I’m not going to hide it, I was a little disappointed. I try not to think about it.

‘I’ve kept working so that these clubs come back during the next transfer window.

‘My future? I am open to everything. I love all the different leagues.’
