Liverpool have been linked with French international and Monaco star Thomas Lemar and the rumors have gathered pace since the departure of Coutinho from the Anfield club.
Two British media outlets are suggesting that the Reds are serious about securing the signature of the Ligue 1 superstar, who helped Monaco win the league last season.
According to the Sun, Liverpool are set to swoop for the £90million rated ($121.9million) star by readying an offer for him this month.
It is stated that the reigning French champions appear willing to sell and Klopp wants to take advantage as early as possible.
On the other hand, Mirror have reported that Liverpool want Lemar and will try to get his signing done by making a bid this month. It is stated that Lemar wants to move to Anfield despite interest from Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea.
Therefore, Liverpool are favorites to hire him this month and if the move does not go through in winter, Mirror claim that the Reds are confident of signing him in the summer transfer window.
This season, Lemar has so far featured in 13 league games and directly contributed in 6 goals (2 goals and 4 assists). He has played 8 times for the senior French side and scored two goals.
Klopp has already got two pacy playmakers in the form of Mane and Salah. Lemar’s arrival could make Liverpool attack even more devastating.
