Excusing whether he is actually available or we could get him; I'd argue that you pay this much for a player of his quality and potential in todays market - and if we can we should because he will improve our team markedly. If he can only make the bench then even better.Unless Coutinho is out, I can't see this happening. You won't pay this much for a bench player and I doubt Klopp would play Coutinho + Lemar as CM pair.
According to reports Lucas is going to Monaco as a part of the deal, so they have a replacement to LemarFrom what I heard, Arsenal tried really hard to bring him in. But no luck, Wenger say no way Monaco will sanction this deal. I believe Arsenal offered around £45 million. Can't see this happening, because Mbappe is on his way to PSG (reportedly with loan and obligations to buy next year)
Why does it? If true it looks like we're preparing for Coutinho's departure, don't see why you think we've dropped our interest in Keita, I reckon he'll be joining us next summer. Maybe as a replacement for Can.Looks like we have moved on from Keita and throwing that money at Lemar? Or is Coutinho off and we get both?
