Latest Rumours on New Bid for Thomas Lemar

Latest Rumours on New Bid for Thomas Lemar

However, reports breaking late last night and into this morning revealed that Liverpool were the latest club to express an interest in Lemar, and were ready to table a massive 70 million Euro+ offer for his services.

Monaco remain keen to keep Lemar, but are facing severe tests as the transfer window reaches its climax.

The fact they'd already lost so many stars had been muted as the reason for Arsenal's failed attempt to sign Lemar earlier this summer, meaning Liverpool would be firmly gazumping the Gunners by snaring the Frenchman.

"But Arsene Wenger says he can't see this deal happening now because Monaco have sold too many players and they don't want to sell Lemar".

Mohamed Salah, Andy Robertson and Dominic Solanke are the only new arrivals at Anfield this summer, but Jurgen Klopp hinted that could change after they secured their passage to the Champions League group stages.

The Potters tried to take an early lead, but Kurt Zouma's shot was saved by Ben Foster. Luckily I judged the bounce and it went in today.

"I said I think before the game, if you talk to a player, they really often [mention it]. especially players we talk to".

The Principality club have already sold Bernardo Silva, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Benjamin Mendy this summer, while Kylian Mbappe looks set to join Paris Saint-Germain.

Lemar, who helped Monaco win the French title last season for the first time in 17 years, was in France's starting line-up for the friendly victory over England in June.

The 21-year-old established himself as an exciting attacking talent last season following a return of nine goals and 10 assists in 34 appearances in Ligue 1 last term.
