Monaco ace Thomas Lemar admits he was frustrated that a Premier League move did not happen.
The French attacker has been targeted by Arsenal and Liverpool during the last two transfer windows.
The North Londoners were set to bring him to the Emirates last summer but backed out of the deal after baulking at Monaco’s £90m asking fee.
And the 22-year-old was linked with a transfer to Liverpool in January as a successor for Philippe Coutinho.
The South American joined Barcelona in a deal worth £142m, but Jurgen Klopp chose not to splash out on an alternative, notwithstanding being linked with Lemar and Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez.
The winger has struggled for the Ligue 1 club this term, netting just three goals so far while providing eight assists.
However, the Frenchman insists that he is working hard as he wants to seal a move to England this summer.
“I’m not going to hide it; I was a little disappointed,”
“I try not to think about it. I’ve kept working so that these clubs come back during the next transfer window.” – he told Telefoot.
The Reds and Arsenal are desperate to add to their squad this campaign as they look to keep up with Manchester City.
After the international break, both teams are back in action next weekend.
