And Brassell says Lemar wants to join Liverpool and if the Reds table a bumper offer, Monaco are willing to sell.

Lemar had been close to making a switch to the Premier League with Arsenal last summer as Arsene Wenger looked to sign the £90m-rated forward to replace Manchester City-bound Sanchez.

But it was said that Lemar turned down the move to the Emirates Stadium on deadline day and consequently the Gunners also blocked the departure of Sanchez to Pep Guardiola's side. Everything can change. The things I can say today are not true tomorrow.

The article claims that Liverpool FC were keen on signing Lemar in the summer but did not table an official bid for the France worldwide.

"You know the problem with the transfer window", he said in a press conference when quizzed about Lemar's future at Monaco.

The mega deal that saw Barcelona sign Coutinho means that Liverpool have funds available to them.

That is because Jurgen Klopp's side, as well as Manchester United, are in the mix for the Chilean now.

"But the transfer window lasts until the end of the month and many things can happen". "Players like Keita (Balde), Jovetic, Tielemans are all players signed in the knowledge that Lemar will go at some point", Brassell told the Liverpool Echo.

"I want him to stay for longer because he's a very important player for us". However, the move failed to materialize and Lemar ended up staying put at the principality-based outfit.

The versatile France global has also been linked with Liverpool, who are seeking replacements for key midfielder Philippe Coutinho after he sealed a dream move to Barcelona. "He's got a lot of qualities and I like him a lot".
