As such, Monaco's Thomas Lemar is said to be the number 1 target of the Merseysiders.

Jurgen Klopp has identified the France worldwide as his primary target to replace Philippe Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in a club-record £142m deal on Saturday, 6 January.

Lemar, a 22-year-old French global, set Ligue 1 and the Champions League alight last season, with his combination of pace, pinpoint delivery and eye for goal having alerted some of Europe's biggest clubs to his talents.

This season, Lemar has so far featured in 13 league games and directly contributed in 6 goals (2 goals and 4 assists).

Jardim had claimed last week that Monaco were "not in the habit" of selling during the winter transfer window, but that stance now appears to have changed.

Monaco had previously insisted the £90million-rated France star would not be leaving this month, but when questioned by L'Equipe about the possibility of more departures this January, Jardim could offer no guarantees.

The 22-year-old attracted strong interest from Arsenal and Liverpool during the summer with both clubs making attempts to sign the Frenchman during the closing stages of the window.

The January transfer window is now open so clubs are working hard trying to strengthen their squads for the second half of the season and put deals in place for the summer.

Arsene Wenger also remains keen on Lemar after failing with a late offer last summer, with the Arsenal boss seeing the former Caen youngster as a possible replacement for the outgoing Alexis Sanchez.
