Arsenal could resurrect their interest in Monaco forward Thomas Lemar, according to Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol.

The Gunners were linked with a move to sign the France international in the summer transfer window and appeared to have beaten Premier League rivals Liverpool FC to his signature when Monaco accepted a £91m bid.

However, Lemar turned down a move to Arsenal and Alexis Sanchez’s proposed switch to Manchester City fell through on transfer deadline day in the summer.

The Gunners could have to enter the January transfer window depending on whether Mesut Ozil and Sanchez remain at the north London club or complete speculated moves to Manchester.

Lemar is one of France’s top prospects and the French attacker scored nine times and made 10 assists in 34 appearances in their title-winning campaign.

While the France international has struggled to match his performance level this season, Arsenal remain interested in the Ligue 1 star.

And Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol provided Arsenal supporters with an exciting update after he suggested the Gunners could make a fresh bid for Lemar in January but could face competition from Liverpool FC.

“At the moment, it could be resurrected, Arsenal could be interested,” Solhkol told Sky Sports News. “Liverpool are interested as well. Would they go in January again?”

Arsenal started the final weekend in 2017 in sixth place in the Premier League table.
