Liverpool fans are gathering in their masses in the Transfer Tavern for tonight’s crunch Premier League tie with Chelsea and they’re passing the time before kick-off by discussing the latest reports from the continent.
French outlet L’Equipe state that Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid are all expressing an interest in Monaco’s breakthrough star Thomas Lemar, with the Reds favourite to land the player’s signature.
20-year-old Lemar has impressed in his debut season with the French principality side, having made the move to Monaco last summer from French minnows Caen, and his performances during his 25 Ligue 1 games this season have increased interest in the youngster.
Monaco do not want to lose the talented asset but boss Leonardo Jardim has left Lemar unhappy by dropping him to the bench for the past four games, claiming it is within everyone’s best interests to give him a break away from the spotlight.
With the transfer market likely to be incredibly lucrative this summer, our landlord feels the French side will definitely cash-in if Jurgen Klopp offers the right price.
Liverpool fans, how many signings do you want Klopp to make this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
