Liverpool have made a second bid for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.
The Reds have identified Lemar as their priority signing with just two days of the transfer window remaining.
It emerged on Monday that they had made an approach for the France international, but Monaco are reluctant to part with yet another first-team player this summer.
Sky Sports claimed that Liverpool had already had two bids rejected for Lemar, the second of just over £66m, but L’Equipe refute those reports.
They claim that the Reds, after having an offer of €72million plus €8m in add-ons rejected, have returned with a second bid on Tuesday.
They have now offered €80m, plus Divock Origi on loan.
The offer includes €50m up front, with €30m in a guaranteed payment next summer, and ‘are now awaiting a response’ from the Ligue Un club.
Tottenham also want him, apparently.
