Thomas Lemar made it very clear he wanted to play for Klopp last summer. Rejected the chance to move elsewhere. If we don’t sign him it’s on FSG.

Lemar feels as inevitable as Keita & Van Dijk did

It’s the best club for him, has no reason to go to Arsenal now anyway. You chose to get Auba and didn’t cough up for Lemar
