Liverpool reportedly still chasing talented attacker available for £87.5 million

According to the Daily Star, Thomas Lemar is still number 1 priority for Liverpool despite recent denials from Jurgen Klopp.

The same source claims Liverpool already have an agreement with the Frenchman, but AS Monaco officials are not ready to lower their £87.5 million asking price.

The Reds have been seeking a top-class attacking reinforcement ever since Philippe Coutinho left the club to join Barcelona.

The 22-year-old playmaker has proved to be one of the best in his position in Europe over the last two seasons, showing excellent performances both with Monaco and France National Team.

Klopp is a big admirer of the left-footed winger, as he identified him as the perfect replacement for the Brazilian wizard.

It also seems Lemar would be more than happy to join the Merseyside club, but so far the clubs haven’t been able to agree on the terms.

The January transfer window is nearing its end, and Liverpool will have to hurry up if they want to reinforce their squad ahead of the second half of the season.
