Liverpool out to make French winger their club record signing and close in on Portuguese midfielder as Keita signs - all the transfer rumours

Liverpool have reportedly made a bid for Monaco winger THOMAS LEMAR.

The 21 year-old has been the subject of much interest from Arsenal but now Sky Sources indicate that Liverpool have made an effort to hijack the London club's pursuit with a £55 million offer.

If the deal were to go through, it would make Lemar Liverpool's record transfer, surpassing the £43.9 million move that brought Mohamed Salah to the club earlier this summer.

Meanwhile, Liverpool could also land Bayern Munich midfielder RENATO SANCHES during a busy final few days of the transfer window.

Sky Italy report that the Portuguese midfielder could be set to arrive at Anfield on loan. He move to the German champions for over £30 million last summer after impressing for Benfica and for his country but made just 17 appearances in all competitions for his new club.

The rumours come as NABY KEITA agreed to join Liverpool in 2018 after passing a medical at the club on Monday morning.
