Liverpool have made an enquiry about the possibility of signing Thomas Lemar from Monaco in a €60m (£55m) deal, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Reds have contacted Monaco about the possibility of luring the 21-year-old France international to Anfield before the transfer window shuts on Thursday night.

Lemar has long been linked with a transfer to Arsenal this summer but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admitted last week that a deal to sign the Frenchman is now “dead”.

However, it seems that Liverpool retain an interest in the Monaco star and could make a move before Thursday night’s deadline.

The same story says that the move is not linked to Philippe Coutinho’s future and the speculation linking the Brazilian with a move to Barcelona.

However, the article also claims that Monaco are determined not to sell Lemar this summer as they look to prevent any more players from leaving.

Liverpool have been linked with a host of players this summer, but the Reds have only brought in Mohamed Salah, Andy Robertson and Dominic Solanke so far.

It remains to be seen whether Jurgen Klopp will be able to further strengthen his squad ahead of the transfer deadline.
