Report – £80m Playmaker on Liverpool’s Radar: Should Make Contact

Liverpool have mainly been linked with Guinean international and Leipzig star Naby Keita for quite a while and now they are once again linked with Thomas Lemar.

According to Nice-Matin, the 21-year-old playmaker is on the tablets of Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal –  the clubs that should quickly make contact with Monaco to bid for him since he is very highly rated.

Another translation is done by Sport Witness who claim that the above mentioned PL clubs are expected to contact the Ligue 1 side with offers.

Thomas Lemar is a talented attacker, who mainly starts on the left wing but he can operate effectively on the right flank and also as a central attacking midfielder if needed.

Last season, he made 55 appearances for Monaco, scored 14 goals and provided no fewer than 17 assists.

As far as Liverpool are concerned, they have recently secured the signing of a top quality playmaker in the form of Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian international directly contributed in over 30 goals for Roma last season.

With stars like Mane, Firmino and Coutinho around as well, the Reds really do not need to spend more to strengthen their attacking midfield this summer.

Not to forget, few days back, Mirror covered a report and claimed that Monaco have slapped a price tag of £80m on Lemar.
