  • Thomas Lemar

Confirmation of Philippe Coutinho's move to Barcelona has intensified suggestions Liverpool will look to Lemar to fill the void left by the Brazil global. "But the month is long and many things could happen", said the Monaco coach.

"Right now, Monaco haven't received any offers from Liverpool or Arsenal or no-one else for Thomas Lemar".

The Mirror claim that Arsenal had a £90m bid accepted on deadline day as they looked to find a replacement for Man City-bound Alexis Sanchez but Lemar felt it was too late to push through a move so chose to stay at Monaco.

According to The Daily Mail, Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in signing Lemar from Monaco this month.

His advent also saw a gamut of clubs express their interest in Lemar last summer, with Arsenal the final club, who sought to sign him.

They also credit Arsenal with an interest in Lemar, with their bid in August setting "the starting point for any new negotiations".

Decorated Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah wins African player of the year award
Salah received the price at an award ceremony held at the Confederation of African Football in Accra, Ghana . With Liverpool, he has scored as many as 17 goals in 21 league games and 23 in 29 in all competitions.

"We don't usually sell in winter, but the transfer window is open until the end of the month, and you have to prepare yourself for anything and everything", he said.

The former were willing to sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City this summer if they could get Lemar, but the deal fell through.

Sevilla have only signed one player during the January transfer window and still want to bring in new right full-back, centre-back, defensive midfielder and striker - and Batshuayi is their No. 1 target.

"And, for Lemar, it's a risk to go to Liverpool right now in the way that, at Monaco, he would play every single game".

Lemar would be a natural replacement for Coutinho but Liverpool FC could be forced to pay over the odds for the talented France attacker given Monaco will be aware of the Reds' inflated transfer budget.
