Arsenal had a £92million bid accepted for Lemar back on Transfer Deadline Day earlier this summer, but with youngster in action for France that same day, and little time to consider his decision, he turned the move down.
Arsenal are reportedly set to face serious competition from European giants Barcelona if they choose to resurrect interest in Monaco talent Thomas Lemar in the coming months, with Camp Nou a potentially more attractive option for the Frenchman.
But the deal fell through at the last minute, leading to Arsenal keeping hold of Alexis Sanchez.
Arsenal linked with Napoli's Jorginho
Arsenal are lining up a move for Napoli midfielder Jorginho , as the Gunners seek to add reinforcements to their midfield. Jorginho still has three years left on his contract with Napoli and would likely command a sizeable transfer fee.
Liverpool were another club interested in Lemar in August, with officials alleged to have met with representatives in the closing days of the summer transfer window. If he does stay until the end of the season, he would become a free agent. However, it is equally noted that Barcelona are also taking an interest and the newspaper notes that an offer from Camp Nou might "prove hard to resist" for the coveted 21-year-old.
They are looking for a long term replacement for Andres Iniesta, and with their pursuit of Philippe Coutinho continuing to be frustrated by Liverpool, are now considering Lemar instead.
