Liverpool are still keen on bringing Monaco attacker Thomas Lemar to Anfield and will make another bid at the end of the season.
That’s according to a report by The Independent in which they claim that the club will resurrect a move to bring the twenty-two year old to Merseyside after failing to do so last year.
The France international is reported to have turned down a new contract offer from the Ligue 1 champions and is still intent on making an exit when the campaign finishes.
Monaco remain hopeful of persuading him to stick with them, but their position has been weakened by the Frenchman’s refusal to commit to extending his current contract.
Lemar’s deal reportedly expires at the end of the 2019/20 and that will see his value begin to decline as that date moves closer, so it is no surprise Monaco are trying to negotiate fresh terms.
Liverpool reportedly saw an offer worth £78m turned down last Summer as the transfer window closure approached, but Monaco refused to sell another prized asset after losing several that Summer.
Arsenal also made a late attempt to secure his signing as they prepared to sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City, but both deals collapsed as Monaco refused to sanction a transfer.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to finally land his target after another patient wait.
