On the last day of the window, the Gunners apparently scrambled to get the deal over the line, but it broke down during the final hours.

The 21-year-old, who played against the Netherlands in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier for France on Thursday night, said he was delighted to hear that he would be returning Stade Louis II.

"I am a player of Monaco, I am very happy there," Lemar told Canal+.

"Now I'm going to make a good season with my club, to try to progress and move forward in my career with Monaco.

"I prepared for this game as usual. I do not lose my head, even if there are rumours. I was focused on my game, that's all that mattered to me."
