Liverpool need to up their bid for Thomas Lemar

MONACO concede they could sell Thomas Lemar if a bid of £92million is tabled, according to Kaveh Solhekol.

Jurgen Klopp is eager to embark on a spending spree before the transfer window closes tonight (11pm).

Liverpool have been trying to fend off Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho and they have already rejected three bids.

While repeatedly suggesting Coutinho is not for sale, Klopp is desperate to ensure the Reds are not left flat-footed should the Brazilian leave.

Lemar has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield and reports emerged yesterday indicating the club had sent out a medical team in an effort to push through a deal.

Divock Origi has reportedly been offered to Monaco in a loan deal and the Anfield outfit are prepared to pay £74.4m for Lemar’s services.

But Sky Sports reporter Solhekol admits Monaco would struggle to reject a bid of £92m if it were tabled.

“Monaco say Liverpool target Thomas Lemar not for sale,” he tweeted.

“Every player has his price.

“Told Monaco would find it hard to turn down €100m (£92m).”

Liverpool made a statement signing when they clinched a deal for Naby Keita earlier this week from Red Bull Leipzig, although he won’t officially join until next summer.

The Reds meanwhile, are expected to confirm a deal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

A fee of £35m was agreed between them and Arsenal for the winger yesterday.
