Liverpool reportedly unlikely to pursue top target

Thomas Lemar

And with Liverpool losing Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona on a £142m deal, the Reds are now reported to be interested in signing Lemar as a replacement. "But the month is long and many things could happen".

Lemar emerged as one of the hottest young attacking talents in European football after providing 14 goals and 17 assists to help fire Monaco to the Ligue 1 title last season.

According to reports, it looks like Liverpool are unlikely to bid for Monaco star Thomas Lemar this month.

It is stated that Lemar wants to move to Anfield despite interest from Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea.

But with the scoring form of Liverpool's trio, especially Salah who has 17 goals so far at 0.96 per 90, Lemar to Liverpool could be a deal worth doing.




Only last week, Jardim gave a much more conclusive answer when quizzed on the chances of Monaco's big players leaving this month, per Jack Rosser of the Evening Standard: "We are not in the habit of doing major sales of players (in the winter transfer window)".

Spanish newspaper Diariogol says the 29-year-old Croatian midfielder is wanted by a host of clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool and Juventus.

The former were willing to sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City this summer if they could get Lemar, but the deal fell through.

Monaco are still unwilling to sell Lemar, but if he pushes for an exit, their hand may be forced, in which case, they will command a £90 million fee for him.

Lemar would be a natural replacement for Coutinho but Liverpool FC could be forced to pay over the odds for the talented France attacker given Monaco will be aware of the Reds' inflated transfer budget.
