Liverpool tipped to make €90 million bid for Thomas Lemar in January

Antonio Conte could use Chelsea star to complete Thomas Lemar transfer deal

Chelsea are the latest club to show an interest in Monaco's Thomas Lemar, but they will have to battle Liverpool and Arsenal who see him as a long-term target.

The Frenchman was at the centre of the Alexis Sanchez transfer saga last summer, Arsenal agreeing to sell the Chilean to Man City but pulling out when they realized they couldn't get Thomas Lemar on transfer deadline day.

The Reds were one of a number of clubs who were interested in Lemar towards the closing stages of the summer window and are understood to have made a club-record £75m offer for the France worldwide.

Vasilyev went on to add that he would "never say never" regarding a January move for Lemar, and according to French newspaper L'Equipe, this could be on the cards.

A mom in Utah Tweeted a photo of her son using sign language to say "help" while sitting on Santa's lap at a mall. The thumb should be up, not sideways. "As with spoken language, they will get some things a little wrong".

Liverpool are not the only club interested in Lemar, with a €100 million (£88.29 million) bid from Arsenal mooted, along with overtures from Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Barcelona themselves.

Although Lemar could not participate in this Champions League campaign, he would likely find a good bit of minutes in the Premier League because of Klopp's rotation.

They also came fourth in their UEFA Champions League group behind Besiktas, Porto and RB Leipzig having reached the semi-finals of the competition previous year.

Monaco are nine points behind Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1-a gap that's unlikely to close with the quality available to PSG this season after they brought in the likes of Neymar and Mbappe.
