Liverpool Drops Interest in Monaco Star Thomas Lemar

Liverpool Drops Interest in Monaco Star Thomas Lemar

Liverpool and Arsenal transfer target Thomas Lemar is paid an incredible 30 times less than Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.

The Reds were heavily interested in signing the 22-year-old since last August but the midfielder does not feature in their priority targets for the upcoming transfer window.

Lemar was widely tipped to fill the gap in Liverpool's midfield following the £142m sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona last month, but the report suggests that Klopp is eager to find a player more suited to playing in the midfield playmaker role in which Coutinho had been operating prior to his departure.

Recent reports in France have suggested that the France worldwide has refused a new contract offered to him by Monaco, which could have bolstered the Reds' chances of signing him.

Liverpool were expected to come back in for the French worldwide this summer, but the Liverpool Echo have now alleged that Klopp has instead made a decision to pursue other targets.

This week, reports in France claimed the player had been refusing to sign a new deal at Monaco, giving Liverpool - as well as other interested clubs - greater hope of getting him on their books in the summer.

However, it wasn't purely due to the asking price, as the club's recruitment team of Dave Fallows and Barry Hunter also questioned whether he would be the correct signing for the club.

The French side stormed to the Ligue 1 title ahead of PSG and reached the semi-final of the Champions League, leading to a number of their star players being poached.

However, his stats have dramatically dropped off this season, managing only three goals and five assists.
