According to Telefoot, Liverpool is among four leading European clubs that have registered an interest in A.S Monaco winger Thomas Lemar.

Liverpool is joined by Italian champions Juventus, as well as Premier League heavyweights Arsenal and Tottenham in the pursuit of the talented player.

Monaco, however, is in a strong position, having tied down the player to a contract that extends until 2020. It would take a very large bid for them to consider letting go of one of their breakout stars of the season.

With the current amount of interest for the player from major European clubs, plus the fact that Monaco would need a large bid to release the player, it is unlikely Liverpool will end up with Lemar. The rumours around this player will surely continue throughout the transfer season, but it is unlikely take place.
