Thomas Lemar claimed he could only regret his failure to move to Liverpool a few years ago. Now, he is ready to leave Atletico Madrid in the next transfer market.
For information, Thomas Lemar is one part of the Monaco AS squad that successfully won the Ligue 1 championship in the 2016/17 season ago. At that time, several Monte Carlo club players were targeted by a number of European giants, including Thomas Lemar.
Unfortunately, unlike Mbappe and Bernardo Silva, this French Winger did not get permission to leave the club at that time. According to the news that was heard, AS Monaco refused to sell the player because there were already many key players who left.
In fact, at that time there was a lucrative offer from Premier League giants Liverpool. In this regard, Thomas Lemar admitted that he was sorry for failing to move to Anfield.
“Am I sorry? Maybe. I did not cover it. I’m a little disappointed, “said Thomas Lemar to Telefoot.
A year later, then the 24-year-old player moved the club close to Atletico Madrid. The player is redeemed through pockets of not less than 70 Million Euros. Unfortunately, he was the target of criticism because behind the high price tag, his performance was considered unsatisfactory.
He realized his career might not develop with the Spanish La Liga club, so Lemar opened the door to leave next summer.
“After everything is finished, it’s over, so I try not to think about it. I continued to work so that these clubs returned during the next transfer window. I am open to all offers. I did not close the door, “he said.
On one hand, Atletico Madrid is said to be no longer convinced by Thomas Lemar. For this reason, he is included in the list of selling clubs in the upcoming transfer market.
Reportedly, Thomas Lemar could choose to join a Premier League club because of the interest of Arsenal. The north London club is believed to have been interested in getting Thomas Lemar’s services since the summer of 2017.
Now, looking at the player’s situation, the Gunners should be able to recruit him either on loan or be redeemed permanently.
