Liverpool are closing in on a move for Thomas Lemar with a medical team on their way to Monaco to complete the process.
Liverpool are determined to smash their club record transfer fee with an ambitious move for the French midfielder with time running out before the window closes.
Having already offered Monaco €80million (£74.4m) plus Divock Origi on loan the Reds are hopeful the Ligue 1 champions are ready to do business.
Reports today claim Barcelona are also set to begin talks with Monaco over Lemar having failed to so far sign Coutinho.
And with that in mind, Liverpool have moved quickly to try and wrap up a deal.
Spanish newspaper Marca claim Liverpool have sent a medical team to Monaco to carry out tests on the 21-year-old.
