Liverpool Prepare Club Record Bid For Lemar
Liverpool are prepared to test Monaco’s resolve to keep midfielder Thomas Lemar with a club record offer of about £60m before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
Manager Jurgen Klopp is an admirer of the 21-year-old and while no official bid has yet been tabled, there is definite interest from Anfield.
Any move for Lemar is not linked to the future of midfielder Philippe Coutinho.
France international Lemar, who can play centrally or out wide, also attracted interest from Arsenal this summer, but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger claimed their interest in the player was “dead” after insisting Monaco had closed the door on further sales.
