Liverpool make Thomas Lemar enquiry with Arsenal target and Monaco potentially making club-record £55million move to Anfield

LIVERPOOL have reportedly opened talks with Monaco over a club-record £55million deal for Thomas Lemar.

The Telegraph claims Jurgen Klopp could offer a club-record fee for the France international as doubts linger over Philippe Coutinho’s future.

Liverpool have already rejected three bids from Barcelona for the Brazilian playmaker.

But with one final attempt from the Catalans in the works, Coutinho could yet find himself at the Nou Camp before Thursday’s deadline.

However, the report adds that his future is not linked with Klopp turning to 21-year-old Lemar, who is also being chased by Arsenal.

Monaco are reluctant to sell after already cashing in on a number of aces including Tiemoue Bakayoko and Bernardo Silva.

But their stance is unlikely to deter Liverpool, especially if Coutinho ends up heading to Barcelona.

Yet a deal could be complicated after Kylian Mbappe agreed to join Paris Saint-Germain.

The striker will move to the French capital on a season-long loan, with PSG having the option to sign him for £166m next summer.

And Monaco will be sure to put up a fight to prevent any further players from departing.
