      I find it strange why Real did not come back from him.

      Lot of money for a keeper and they don’t really need one right now with Navas. Seems that they are going to sign Kepa from Athletic who seems is the future Spain goalkeeper.

      I can see Sanchez going to City and Arsenal putting in a bid for Lemar to buy in the summer, all depends on if Wenger tries to undervalue him whether they get him.

      We have our chance right now to wrap this deal up now or for the summer and weve so far done f**k all about it.

      I'd be happy to do a similar deal to Keita,  paying a fee now to secure his services in the Summer. A good world cup and we're facing not only a price increase but also competition from Europe's Elite. Similarly, failure to secure Champions League Football for next season and we can kiss goodbye his interest. Obviously I want him in Jan but failing that, this would be the next best option.

      What if we weren't really in for Lemar? Sure seems like this is one of those with a lot of smoke and no fire.

      I would assume that we demanded more for him, and got it,  if there was no temporary loan back.

      Monaco 'lower' Thomas Lemar price - but Liverpool 'won't make a big offer

      Arsenal are poised to pounce on the Monaco star

      Monaco could be about to lower their asking price for Thomas Lemar, according to reports in France.

      However, one Ligue 1 expert believes Liverpool still won't be enticed into making a bid this January.

      The Reds remain interested in the French international, although indications are their efforts of bringing the player to Anfield would not be focused until the summer.

      But RMC Sport now claim Monaco could change that stance, and will begin negotiations for the player at 70million euros - around £61million - as Arsenal begin to position themselves as contenders for his signature.

      The story claims the 22-year-old has been identified as the perfect replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who could move to Manchester City in January, six months before his contract expires at the Emirates.

      However, journalist Loic Tanzi, works for both RMC Sport and SFR Sport, believes Monaco are open to selling their star man if they received a "big offer" - but that is likely not to come from Liverpool.

      "He is their priority to replace Alexis Sanchez," he said. "Monaco are not totally against the idea of an offer this month, but it would have to be a very big offer.
      "I am told that Liverpool wouldn't make a big offer."

      Liverpool are also exploring the possibility of bringing Naby Keita to Anfield six months before his agreed arrival as they look to fill the void left by Philippe Coutinho.

      Doesn’t really make much sense, we’re interested in the player but won’t do business until the summer.

      Like I said in the previous thread, Lemar is not Klopp's first choice.

      I think he will go out and try to sign Pulisic in the summer (his first choice target)

      What makes you think Lemar isn't somebody he wants? Think a lot of people said that we did make a bid for him in late summer.
      there are other player I want rather then Lemar  but I think the interest is genuine.

      LFC will monitor incessantly, to the point where the object of the intense scrutiny is pictured wearing a rival's shirt.

      because Raphael Honigstein, who is a journalist and who happens to be good friends with Jürgen Klopp said in an interview that Jürgen is desperate to sign Pulisic, his top priority over Lemar. Interest in Lemar IS genuine but he isn't our first choice target.

      I heard Rafa Honigstein talking around November last year (just before his book launch) saying he didn't know Jürgen that well. Admired him from a distance
      That when he worked back home he didn't really cover where Jürgen had worked as he's a Bavarian

      Aha, didn't know about that. If I could choose then it would have been Nabil fekir. He has everything and reminds me a lot of rivaldo.
      I trust Jürgen whomever he brings in, and will add to the team.

      Pulisic would be perfect for FSG to market the hell out of as a young talented potential star of American soccer.

      If he is our main target then it will be as someone who can step in when the main players need resting.

      One for the future as they say.

      Edit : Honigstein did say Pulisic is more likely in summer so we could still be looking at Lemar for this window.

      I guess he's german guilleme balague? He kind of remind me of him as Guilleme had a close connection to Rafa during his Liverpool days.

      Pulisic would walk into our XI, he is a very very good player. But he plays in the same position Salah plays in, so it would be interesting nevertheless. Klopp got him at Dortmund and now he wants him here.

      Pulisic would be sound. One for the future that could also play right now...he starts a lot of games for Dortmund I believe.  I still don't believe the Lemar hype at this point. I think if we Jürgen really wanted him, we'd have bid on him already...their owners have basically went from "he's not for sale" to "we lowered the price come get him" and still no movement from us...that makes me think that one is all smoke and no fire.

      I doubt he would walk into the team his output for an attacker in terms of goals and assists is not there yet which is understandable for a 19 year old.

      Coutinho at 21 with Inter 28 appearances and 3 goals a low output for an attacking midfielder, yet when we signed him he was a starter and showed why we signed him.

      I think Pulisic would be the same, or he will rotate with Salah on the left hand side. He's a great dribbler, has the speed and  good at crossing. If he works on his defensive game he will be a future star.

      I think our first team now esp up front is much stronger than when Coutinho arrived, cant argue he has a lot of ability and I can see why Klopp wants him but he would not be starting ahead of Salah or Mane at the moment.
