Liverpool reportedly come up with clever plan to sign Thomas Lemar

Liverpool reportedly come up with clever plan to sign Thomas Lemar”

Arsenal had been in talks to sign the attacking midfielder all summer and are believed to have had a £30m offer rejected last month while Barcelona were also understood to be tracking the player.

Lemar, on the other hand, is a player that Klopp will have far more use for with his versatility and quality unlikely to see him benched for prolonged periods.

The ongoing rumours surrounding Philippe Coutinho's future at Anfield makes this transfer even more important for Liverpool to get over the line.

Liverpool are prepared to test Monaco's resolve to keep midfielder Thomas Lemar with a club record offer of about £60m before Thursday's transfer deadline.

Liverpool's Belgian striker Divock Origi.

Whether that stance would ultimately change should Lemar and Van Dijk come through the door, along with Coutinho's questionable behaviour in the past few weeks, but for now (publicly at least), Liverpool are not budging.

The French newspaper claim that Liverpool have offered €80m + the former Lille starlet to try and convince the Ligue 1 champions to let go of a key man they aren't exactly interested in seeing leave this summer.

"We are not afraid of big numbers at the club, we are not afraid to spend", Klopp previously told Goal about the club's objectives in the market.

'He is popular in the dressing room and has been a massive player for us.

Yesterday, Liverpool agreed a club record fee of over £48m with RB Leipzig for the services of Naby Keita.

In fact, Origi wasn't involved at all in the match day squad during Liverpool's 4-0 thrashing over Arsenal on Sunday.

He went on to star for the European country at the Fifa World Cup in 2014, scoring against Russian Federation, performances that earned him a move to Liverpool.
