Liverpool have entered the race for 14-goals League 1 champion

June 19, 2017

According to the reports from French media outlet Telefoot, Liverpool have entered the race to sign AS Monaco ace Thomas Lemar, who has been heavily linked with a departure from League 1 champions in the summer transfer window.

SkyBet have Tottenham Hotspur as clear favourites to sign the 21-year-old Lemar at 10/11, with rivals Arsenal following at 9/2.

But Telefoot suggests that Liverpool are one of four teams who have now expressed interest in the French midfielder, along with Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Italian champions Juventus.

The Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was coy last week when quizzed after France’s international fixture if he had been trying to persuade Lemar to join him at Tottenham, The Telegraph reported.

Lemar has managed to score 14 goals and registered 14 assists last season, a prolific season as he helped Monaco win the Ligue 1 title and reach the Champions League semi-finals.

Liverpool have been pushing to sign AS Roma wing star Mohamed Salah but have been unable to reach an agreement for the winger so far. Thomas Lemar is a quality alternative for the Merseyside giants to be considering.
