Monaco have rejected two bids for Thomas Lemar as they battle to keep hold of their star midfielder.
Sky Sports are reporting that the French champions have rejected a €70m (£64.8m) bid for Lemar. They have already sold Tiemoue Bakayoko to Chelsea, Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva to Manchester City, and are close to losing Kylian Mbappe to PSG, so understandably do not want to lose any more of their star players.
Lemar has attracted attention from Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool. Arsenal had bids rejected earlier this summer, while Liverpool’s bid this week has also been rejected.
Some reports on social media suggest that Monaco want €100m for the midfielder, whereas other reports suggest they are determined to keep him at the club beyond this Thursdays transfer deadline.
Yesterday, Liverpool agreed a club record fee of over £48m with RB Leipzig for the services of Naby Keita. The Guinean midfielder will join Jurgen Klopp’s side on July 1st 2018 after they came to an agreement regarding the players release clause.
