Liverpool are ready to go after the 22-year-old in the summer who is likely to cost at around £90m.
Arsenal are also in the race for the highly-rated winger but Independent understands Lemar’s favourite destination is Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp wil look to replace Philippe Coutinho when the summer transfer window opens and the French star remains one of Liverpool’s main candidates.
Last summer, Monaco rejected a £78M offer from Liverpool on deadline day but accepted a higher bid from Arsenal. The player, though, valued the prospect of Champions League football and joining Jürgen Klopp’s Anfield project.
