A deal to bring Monaco's young attacking star Thomas Lemar to Anfield is unlikely to be completed within the day ahead of the player's global commitments on Thursday.

But it seems Monaco have stolen a march on the other clubs and according to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Ligue 1 champions are closing in on a deal to sign Balde in the coming days.

It would likely take a fee in excess of £70million for Monaco to cash in on the highly-rated 21-year-old. That, plus the tax-free wages in Monaco, make it not hard to understand why it might be an attractive destination for him. Arsene Wenger went as far as saying: 'It's dead because Monaco have closed the door definitely'.

But Monaco are also on the hunt for replacements for Kylian Mbappe, who is on the verge of joining Paris Saint-Germain on loan before a permanent £166m switch next summer. "We have the numbers and quality to deal with that".

The France worldwide was one of the top performers for Leonardo Jardim's side last term, scoring 14 times and registering 17 assists in all competitions.

"It is not about confidence in this situation, it is about what the owners have said".

They have mapped out a proposal that would see them pay £74million and they could use Divock Origi as a makeweight in the deal; the Belgium striker is surplus to requirements at Anfield but Liverpool do not want to sell him to Premier League rivals, which rules out Tottenham.

"There is no problem like this". He's an incredible forward-thinking player, always looking to find teammates in behind with slick passes.
