Speaking while on international duty, the Monaco man told Telefoot, “Some regrets? Maybe not. I was a little disappointed (not to have joined the Gunners).”  

“Its now in the past, I cannot dwell on it.

“I carry on working hard so that all those clubs come back to try to sign me in the next transfer window.

“I am open to every offer. I am a football player who loves playing football.

“I have not discounted any potential offer.

“I am open to them all.”

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for Thomas Lemar in the summer as a potential Alexis Sanchez replacement.

Although they failed with a £92m deadline-day bid due to the timing of it all, Arsene Wenger said the club would return for Lemar in January but, well, we didn’t.

Liverpool have also been heavily and consistently linked with a move for Lemar who has reportedly turned down a new contract with Monaco as he seeks a move away.
