Thomas Lemar has informed Monaco that he wants to move to Liverpool before the end of the transfer window, according to reports.

Liverpool remain in talks with the Ligue 1 champions and have already made a club-record £70 million offer.

But Goal claim that Lemar is pushing for a move to Anfield and has told Monaco chiefs about his desire to play under Jurgen Klopp.

Monaco have stood firm over the 21-year-old’s availability and reports in France are claiming that any deal depends on whether the club are able to sign a replacement in time.

Liverpool were willing to use Divock Origi as a makeweight in the deal but have since agreed a £6m loan fee with Wolfsburg.

Barcelona are also considering a move for Lemar but the France international is currently considered by Barca’s hierarchy as an alternative option to Philippe Coutinho.
