Liverpool have been told that they will have to pay more than £100million if they want to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco this summer.

The Reds are keen to make the France international their third signing of the transfer window after Naby Keita and Fabinho, but Monaco will only accept a bid of over £100m for the winger, according to Transfer Market Web.

Jurgen Klopp wants to bring more attacking players to Anfield and, having signed Lemar’s former team-mate Fabinho, is looking to add another Ligue 1 player to his ranks.

A bid of €115m (£101m) would reportedly be enough to tempt Monaco to sell their star, who can play on either wing, or more centrally as an attacking midfielder.

Alternatively, Liverpool could move for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele, in a deal that could also rise above £100m.

After splashing out £75m to sign Virgil Van Dijk in January, the Reds are willing to break their transfer record again in an effort to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
