Liverpool still waiting on Thomas Lemar

Liverpool star Naby Keita will play for the Reds next season

Manchester City are believed to have upped their offer to £60 Million for Alexis Sanchez, and they are believed to have stalled on accepting that deal unless they can reignite their move to bring in Lemar.

Liverpool are refusing to do business for the Brazilian global despite his desire to leave for the Nou Camp but that stance could see Jurgen Klopp miss out on signing Lemar.

Reports emerging from England claim Alexis Sanchez's proposed deal with Manchester City has broken down due to a odd reason.

Liverpool signed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in a £40m deal from Arsenal on transfer deadline day to improve their midfield options.

But, although Arsenal were reportedly willing to pay as much as €100million to buy Lemar, the player's involvement against Netherlands in Paris for Les Bleus' key World Cup qualifier appears to indicate he will stay with the Ligue 1 champions.

Liverpool are prepared to shatter their transfer record to sign Monaco's attacking midfielder Thomas Lemar.


Arsenal have had three offers rejected for Lemar this summer, including the highest of £50m.

According to Spanish publication Sport, Barcelona have made a late move to sign Thomas Lemar from AS Monaco, in part to spite Liverpool for their refusal to part company with Philippe Coutinho.

"They lost Mendy, Silva and Bakayoko so Monaco are at the stage where they have closed the door".

He scored 14 goals and provided 17 assists in 55 appearances as Monaco reached last season's Champions League semi-finals.

Lemar, 21, is also a target for the Reds, who are preparing a £60m bid for the French midfielder.

Arsenal transfer business so far...

... The club still has plenty more money to spend, however.
