Liverpool and Arsenal have been linked with Monaco's Thomas Lemar in the January transfer window. "But the month is long and many things could happen", said the Monaco coach.

Lemar has been tipped as a potential replacement for Philippe Coutinho at Anfield, while the Reds are also looking at Schalke's Leon Goretzka and Dortmund's Christian Pulisic.

Jardim's comments regarding potential winter sales may offer Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hope regarding his chances of landing France worldwide Lemar, particularly with Monaco out of the UEFA Champions League.

Jardim has previously suggested winter departures for key players were unlikely, but he gave a softer response on the matter on Monday, per French daily L'Equipe (h/t the Liverpool Echo's Ian Doyle): "We are not used to selling in the winter".

Liverpool are just one of the Premier League clubs reported to hold an interest in Lemar, and Arsenal even saw a bid rejected last season for the 22-year-old.

"And, for Lemar, it's a risk to go to Liverpool right now in the way that, at Monaco, he would play every single game".

Laurens told BBC Radio 5 Live's Euro Leagues Football Show: "I love it how for all Liverpool fans that it's a given that Lemar is going to come and replace Coutinho as early as this month".
