Liverpool are working hard to try and complete a deal for either Thomas Lemar or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain before the close of the transfer window on Thursday night, according to Kaveh Solhekol.

The Reds have been linked with a whole host of players throughout the summer transfer window, but they have so far only concluded deals to sign Mohamed Salah, Andy Robertson and Dominic Solanke.

There have been widespread reports in the media in recent days suggesting that Liverpool have stepped up their efforts to try and sign Monaco attacker Lemar from the Ligue 1 club.

Now, however, Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol is claiming that the Reds are still interested in signing either Lemar or Arsenal midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain before Thursday night’s deadline.

Oxlade-Chamberlain’s future has been a source of speculation and he has less than one year left on his current contract.

Solhekol wrote on Twitter on Monday night: “Liverpool working hard to make sure they sign Thomas Lemar or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain before window closes on Thursday.”

Liverpool have made a strong start to the new season under Jurgen Klopp, and thrashed Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield on Sunday to place them second in the table behind Manchester United.

However, Klopp is thought to be keen to bring in more reinforcements at Anfield as he prepares his team for a return to the Champions League group stage next month.
