Liverpool fans are very excited after big transfer news followed their Arsenal win
What a week it’s been for the Reds.
Having enjoyed a particularly good start to the season, Liverpool are showing no signs of slowing down.
The Reds found their way back into the Champions League last week, qualifying for the competition for the first time since the 2014/15 season with victory against Hoffenheim.
For a club who pride themselves on their five European Cup wins, that meant a lot.

And on Sunday, the Anfield side made it a week to remember with a 4-0 thrashing of Arsenal – lifting themselves to second in the league in the process.

I know Arsenal made Liverpool look good a bit, but Liverpool were also good. Played football we’d love to be playing.— arseblog (@arseblog) August 27, 2017
But with the transfer window soon to end, could things get even better for Liverpool?
They could, and they have done, with surprising reports that long-rumoured transfer target Naby Keita has agreed to join Jurgen Klopp’s team next year.
Naby Keita underwent a medical this morning in Wilmslow. Deal agreed for him to join #LFC next summer— James Pearce (@JamesPearceEcho) August 28, 2017
Smart move by Liverpool to secure Naby Keita for next summer - plenty will be keeping a close eye on his form for Leipzig now.— Phil McNulty (@philmcnulty) August 28, 2017
Was informed Naby Keita would be having his medical today. Joins next year. Unbelievable. Klopp key.— Oliver Bond (@Oliver__Bond) August 28, 2017
So all is well at Anfield – but what would make things even better? Well, further exciting transfer news couldn’t hurt, could it?
Reports of a bid for Monaco star Thomas Lemar made it a pretty enjoyable Monday for Reds fans.
Sky sources: Liverpool make bid of £55.5m to Monaco for midfielder Thomas Lemar pic.twitter.com/9tYuSLMmOs— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) August 28, 2017
The winger emerged as one of Monaco’s best players last season and has been linked with a move away from the club.
Is it fair to say he would make Liverpool serious title contenders?

A little Lemar pun here.
I'd say the the chances of us signing Lemar were 50/50.— Jimmy (@EntireDesign_) August 27, 2017
Would Liverpool fans rather have Philippe Coutinho in the starting XI, or Lemar?
If Lemar signs it is still vital that we hold onto Coutinho. Will need him for League Cup games with a busy season ahead.— DaveOCKOP (@DaveOCKOP) August 28, 2017
Perhaps this might help them make their mind up.
