The Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are settling in for what should be an exciting few weeks of business as manager Jurgen Klopp looks to build a side capable of taking on the Champions League next season, as well as maintaining their top four status.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager has always been a big fan of young attacking midfielders and, with that in mind, is being linked with one of the most in-demand in Europe.
According to reports from Telefoot, the Reds are interested in a move for Monaco winner Thomas Lemar, who is turning heads having played a crucial role in helping the principality club win their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years, as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League.
However, the Merseysiders will face a tough battle, with Premier League rivals Arsenal and Tottenham also credited with interest, alongside Italian champions and Champions League finalists, Juventus.
Our landlord reckons that, while Liverpool would be tempting for most top footballers, there is more chance of consistent first team football with either of the London clubs, given the abundance of attacking players at Anfield.
Liverpool fans, we want to hear from you! Do you think you can land a deal for Lemar this summer? Let us know in the comments…
