Liverpool have bid £66.5million for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar, according to reports in France.

Jurgen Klopp is keen to add to his squad ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline, and L’Equipe report the Anfield hierarchy have turned their attention to Lemar.

Monaco face losing arguably their two biggest names this week, with Kylian Mbappe expected to complete a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

It could initially be on loan, with the option to buy for a whopping £166million next summer, but the finer details are yet to be thrashed out.

Liverpool’s €72million offer is reportedly inclusive of €8million in add-ons.

Lemar is under contract with Monaco until 2020, having arrived at the club for just €4million two years ago.

L’Equipe say Lemar is keen to move to the Premier League, following interest from Arsenal earlier in the summer.

The Gunners apparently made three bids, with their final one over £46million.
