Liverpool are favourites to sign Thomas Lemar of AS Monaco. The Frenchman was a subject of a series of interest from top European clubs. Premier League clubs were more than happy to splash the cash on the 21-year-old attacker in the summer, though he did end up staying at Monaco.
The Reds were a big admirer of Lemar and wanted to sign him up this summer. If reports from Metro were to be believed, Lemar himself had decided to move to Liverpool. But the Reds were unable to convince Monaco to sell their youth starlet.
However, it seems like their chance of singing Lemar has increased once again. It’s possible that the Reds could finalize the deal for the French International in the winter transfer window.
Thomas Lemar was always regarded as one of the top talents in French football ever since his breakout in the Monaco first team. Normally a winger Lemar can play as an attacking midfielder as well. He is a very clever customer in the final third, who uses his dribbling skill and technical abilities to nestle through opposition defences.
The Frenchman is likely to cost around €75m for Liverpool, which only seems fair, considering the fact that he’s four years younger than the Brazilian. Besides, we could be sure that Liverpool will receive much more from the sale of Coutinho next summer, which only makes Thomas Lemar a must buy for Liverpool if they are to pose a strong threat to the Premier League throne.
