Liverpool improved their attacking midfield last summer by signing Mohamed Salah from Italian side Roma. The Eyptian international has been in top form for the Merseysiders this season.
The Reds also tried to sign (via L’Equipe) French international and Monaco star Thomas Lemar but the left winger eventually stayed with the Ligue 1 side.
Arsenal tried to secure the signature of the 21-year-old star as well and according to recent reports (Mirror), the North Londoners are confident that they can hire his services next summer. However, they face competition from Liverpool and Barcelona, who are also in the running.
Lemar played a pivotal role in helping Monaco win the French title last season. In the current campaign, the 21-year-old star has scored 1 goal and provided 3 assists in 10 appearances.
As per the provided Mirror link, Lemar knows that he can command a mammoth deal of over £250,000-a-week to move and it will be intriguing to see where he ends up next summer.
It will not come as any surprise to see Coutinho leave Anfield next summer and if that happens then Liverpool must sign Lemar to replace the Brazilian.
