Chelsea to Reportedly Join Arsenal, Liverpool in Thomas Lemar Pursuit

Both Arsenal and Liverpool tried to sign Monaco's Thomas Lemar in the summer and according to a report from French newspaper L'Equipe, report both clubs will try to persuade the reigning French champions to sell him in January.

Batshuayi made his comeback from injury as a substitute during Tuesday night's win over Huddersfield, but prior to his enforced absence the 24-year-old has played fewer than 200 minutes of Premier League action.

Conte is now without lead striker Alvaro Morata due to injury and started with Eden Hazard as a "false nine" - the fourth time has he done so when devoid of an out-and-out forward - instead of Batshuayi against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday [12 December].

Like the bulk of Monaco's big guns, he attracted serious interest over the summer but despite being heavily courted by Arsenal and Liverpool, stayed put with the Principality side, who have struggled this term and were knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage. It points to a limited future at Stamford Bridge for Batshuayi, even with little other back-up for Morata.

Monaco's new sporting director, Michael Emenalo, played a role in Chelsea landing Batshuayi a year ago and would be keen on bringing the Belgian to the principality.

A return to France may also reignite his stalling career.

Lemar, a 22-year-old French worldwide, set Ligue 1 and the Champions League ablaze last season, with his combination of pace and pinpoint delivery having alerted some of Europe's biggest clubs to his talents.
