AS Monaco: 'Thomas Lemar is going nowhere'

AS Monaco: 'Thomas Lemar is going nowhere'

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has insisted that the club intend to keep Thomas Lemar and Kylian Mbappe.

'I think they need a central midfield player - a holding midfielder - a Patrick Vieira type midfield player.

'Arsenal need more players - more top-class players, ' the former goalkeeper told Goal. "We have discussed this". "I hope that we will get there", Vadim Vasilyev said on Monaco's Twitter page on Wednesday.

"We have kept all of the key players that we meant to keep", Vasilyev said.

Central midfielder Tielemans is the club's marquee signing of the transfer window and Vasilyev expressed his satisfaction with the quality of the players arriving at the club.

It was reported the Gunners have submitted a fresh £45m bid for Lemar on Tuesday night by the Telegraph.

Arsene Wenger's side are one of numerous European giants interested in landing the services of Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe and The Daily Mirror states the Gunners are "still hopeful" of securing a deal, despite suggestions that Real Madrid have made an approach.

It has been reported recently by several media outlets, including The Sun, that Monaco had finally accepted a bid believed to be around £45 million.

The French club have been stripped of some of their finest talents this summer and are now fighting off the advances of Real Madrid for youngster Kylian Mbappe.

While Monaco are stubbornly refusing to accept Arsenal's advanced for the winger, it's claimed the player is keen on a switch.
