Liverpool are reportedly keen on signing the Monaco ace.
Jürgen Klopp has built a wonderful squad of players at Liverpool since taking over at Anfield two-and-a-half years ago, and the German will surely be looking to bolster his ranks further still this month.
The Reds have one of the most deadly front-lines in all of Europe, but if one of their front three is forced to spend a sustained period on the sidelines, Klopp has little in reserve.
With this in mind, the Liverpool boss will surely be targeting the addition of another attack minded player this summer, and the Liverpool Echo claims that Monaco's Thomas Lemar remains one of Klopp's key transfer targets.
The newspaper suggest that the Merseyside outfit tried to sign the France international last summer, and offered Monaco Divock Origi as part of the potential deal - one that eventually failed to materialise.
Lemar would be an exceptional signing for Liverpool, and would make their already superb front-line arguably the best in Europe.
The Frenchman is quick along the ground, possesses impeccable technique, and has a wonderful eye for a killer pass.
In 125 appearances for Monaco, the 22-year-old has chalked up an impressive 22 goals and 31 assists, and the scary thing is that he will get even better with age.
The France international can play anywhere along the front-line, and would provide fantastic competition for the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
According to the Times, Lemar is available for £90 million this summer, and whilst that seems like an awful lot of money, it might actually turn out to be great value for the Reds, considering what the Monaco ace could bring to Anfield.
