Liverpool were interested in signing French international and Monaco star Thomas Lemar in the summer transfer window but the move did not happen.
Now, the Reds are once again looking to lure the Les Bleus playmaker, who was influential in Monaco’s title winning campaign last term.
Last month, Independent claimed that Liverpool are ready to make an offer for the £90million rated ($122million) star in the January transfer window. Moreover, it was mentioned that the player would prefer a move to Anfield.
Now, according to an exclusive report covered by Duncan Castles (Yahoo Sport), Lemar has talked with the Reds and as per sources close to him, he has decided to sign for Liverpool if they can agree a fee with the Ligue 1 club.
Last season, the 22-year-old attacker scored 14 goals and provided 17 assists in 55 games for Monaco. This time around, he has not been in top form. In the current campaign, so far, he has only managed to score 2 goals in 18 appearances (all competitions).
As per the provided Yahoo Sport link, the Merseysiders have been working on a deal to sign a high-profile replacement for Coutinho and Lemar could be the man to take Liverpool forward.
We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming days.
