During the transfer window, rumours are rumbling all the time about player movement.
Liverpool have been heavily linked with a swoop for Monaco star Thomas Lemar, who has previously been touted as a target for Arsenal.
With just four days left to go before the transfer window slams shut, the time is ticking for the Reds to get any more deals done.
The rumour mill started churning on Twitter this evening when it emerged that Lemar has been left out of Monaco’s squad to face Marseille on Sunday.
The Frenchman, along with a number of his teammates, was rested for the midweek League Cup match against Lyon.
Lemar will also not feature this weekend as he is sidelined with a thigh problem.
Despite the injury update, some Liverpool fans are speculating that the attack-minded player could be on his way to Anfield.
Philippe Coutinho missed a few games for the Reds with a similar issue prior to his move to Barcelona.
Monaco have signed an attacker and Lemar isn’t in the Monaco squad?? #LFC

I heard the reason Lemar isn't playing is because he is injured.
He is set to be out for the whole of the transfer window with a 'Coutinho strain' on his left leg…….#LFC

Even Monaco fans think Lemar isn't injured and possibly will leave. #LFC

Either Monaco/Jardim are trolling us by not playing Lemar or there's genuinely something on. #LFC ??
