Thomas Lemar will not be joining Liverpool or Arsenal in January, Monaco's vice president has said.

Vadim Vasilyev told Sky Sports News in October last year that Monaco would wait until at least the end of the 2017-18 season before allowing Lemar to leave.

Monaco's stance did not change despite Liverpool's sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona prompting reports Lemar could make a switch to Anfield earlier than expected.

Arsene Wenger also denied Arsenal would make another attempt to sign Lemar - who turned down a £92m move to Arsenal last summer - before Wednesday's deadline.

"He will stay at Monaco until the end of the season 100 per cent," Vasilyev told RMC, a French radio station.
