According to a report from Express, it was stated that Liverpool could still complete a few deals despite having a quiet January transfer window. It is mentioned that the Reds could target Thomas Lemar of Atletico Madrid who will be out of contract at the end of this season.

It is understood that the French midfielder isn’t keen on extending his contract with the Spanish outfit as they look to cut wage bills from the next term, and this could mean that the Merseyside club could land him for free in the summer transfer window if they agree to his wage demands.

Lemar’s Campaign For Atletico Madrid So Far This Season

Thomas Lemar has had a decent campaign at Wanda Metropolitano after producing a few influential displays for Atletico in the middle of the park. He hasn’t found the back of the net but has managed to produce two assists over nineteen appearances for the Spanish outfit, across all fronts.


The Guadeloupe-born talent has given a good account of himself despite coming off the bench as an impact substitute. He has averaged 1.1 key passes, 1.0 tackles and 0.6 dribbles per game in La Liga. He has also been accurate with his ball distribution after completing 87.2% of his attempted passes in the Spanish top flight (stats via whoscored).

Should Klopp Bring Him To Liverpool?

It is evident that the Merseysiders are in desperate need of midfield reinforcements at Anfield, with the ageing Fabinho, Thiago and Jordan Henderson who are all struggling to have the impact they had on the team last season. This is even more prevalent now as the Reds languish in the ninth position of the Premier League table.

Lemar excels at holding onto the ball and can efficiently distribute possession to his teammates in the opponent’s half, so we can expect him to bring more quality to Klopp’s midfield department. The 27-year-old has enough room to improve his game over the coming years and has what it takes to perform at a high level.

The French sensation could be a shrewd acquisition for Liverpool if they agree to his wage demands. So Jurgen Klopp would be wise to finalise terms with the Atletico midfielder before other clubs start targeting him ahead of the summer transfer window.
