The Reds are said to have a verbal agreement from the Frenchman that he’ll move to Anfield if they can agree a fee with Monaco.
But striking a deal with the French club is proving difficult.
Journalist Duncan Castles said on the latest episode of The Transfer Window Podcast: “Top of Liverpool’s list, we know they want Thomas Lemar.
“We know that Thomas Lemar has agreed to come to the club if they could meet Monaco’s asking price for a transfer fee that they haven’t been prepared to do because Monaco want over €100m (£87.5m).”
Castles says Borussia Dortmund ace Christian Pulisic is a target too.
