Thomas Lemar is a player well-known to Liverpool fans given that the Monaco star is regularly linked with a move to Anfield.
Last summer, the Frenchman was touted in the media as a possible target, and this month following Philippe Coutinho’s switch to Barcelona, the 22-year-old’s name emerged again.
In recent weeks, the speculation has quietened down, but now a report by Yahoo! Sport has claimed the Merseyside outfit have agreed a deal with the player, who has also been linked to Arsenal.
The sticking point, though, is that the Premier League club are refusing to meet Monaco’s asking price of around £90m.
The Ligue 1 giants let a number of first-team stars leave the club last summer, including Tiemoue Bakayoko, Bernardo Silva and Kylian Mbappe.
If Lemar is to join Liverpool, then it is likely that Monaco will try to squeeze as much money out of the deal as possible.
These latest reports have got Liverpool fans talking.

This could be lies, and the most saddenening thing is that if no more players arrive this window bid top four a good bye bye 👋 👋 👋
