Liverpool make their intentions clear over their interest in Monaco's Thomas Lemar - report

Liverpool have been linked with a move to Monaco's Thomas Lemar for the last 12 months, but Anfield insiders have suggested the club's interest in the French international has now cooled.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp made several efforts to sign Lemar last summer, but an inflating price tag meant a deal could not be struck to sign a player who scored 14 goals and provided 17 assists as Monaco won the French title and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League last season.

Now the Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce, who has excellent contacts at Liverpool, is reporting that Anfield chiefs have decided to consider alternative transfer options next summer, with the report claiming 'the club are convinced that there are other players in that position who will be available this summer and are more suited to what Liverpool require'.

This latest report pours cold water on reports suggesting Lemar was closing in on a move to Liverpool after he rejected Monaco's latest efforts to tie him down to a new contract in recent weeks.

Arsenal made a £90m offer to sign Lemar on he final day of last summer's transfer window, as they looked to find a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who had agreed a move to Manchester City, yet Lemar turned down the chance to move to Arsenal, amid claims that he favoured a switch to join Liverpool.

However, it seems that option has been closed for a player who has struggled to maintain his sparkling form over the last few months, with Lemar scoring just twice in the French league this season.
