The big deal of the transfer window could still pull through for us as Liverpool are interested in signing Monaco’s 21-year-old star Thomas Lemar. The Telegraph claims that we want to sign the French midfielder for a club record fee and are willing to go up to €70million.
Lemar was one of the best players for the Monaco side last season that picked up the Ligue1 title and the French international can play as a winger or a creative midfielder, which has led many to believe he will be a replacement for Philippe Coutinho.
The Brazilian was not in action during the 4-0 hammering of Arsenal and with Barcelona looking to add more firepower to their side, Coutinho could still see a big move to the Catalan side.
Liverpool do require more quality players for a side that is going to be playing in the Champions League and Lemar would be a wonderful signing for a team that is hitting their form. Losing Coutinho would be a major blow and even though the club has insisted on keeping the star at Anfield, there were a number of fans who are fretting that the Brazilian will be leaving and Lemar would be coming in.
Twitter was crazy with rumours of Lemar coming in and now it Coutinho’s potential departure has already gotten Liverpool fans tweeting.
If Lemar signs it is still vital that we hold onto Coutinho. Will need him for League Cup games with a busy season ahead.

If we get Lemar, Keïta, VVD and Coutinho stays, I’ll get John Henry smoking a cigar tattoo on my arse.

If we sign Lemar, Keita and VVD, I’ll drive Coutinho to Barcelona myself

That means Coutinho is going. Lemar can come in and play behind Mane, Firminho and Salah. Rahh Liverpool trying it una lol.

If Thomas Lemar joins us, I’ll personally pay for @Phil_Coutinho‘s Uber to the airport tomorrow morning.

If we sell Coutinho, but sign Lemar and Keita. This the most mind fuck Liverpool’s transfer windows ever.

With Liverpool reportedly making a (very high) bid for Monaco’s Lemar, it really looks like Coutinho to Barcelona is indeed happening.
