Monday's Liverpool transfer rumours: Thomas Lemar and Simon Mignolet
Last Updated: 28/08/17 1:30pm
We round up the latest Liverpool transfer rumours from around the British and European press on Monday, August 28.
Liverpool have made an inquiry to sign Monaco's Thomas Lemar for a club-record fee of up to £55m, according to sources in France.
It is claimed the move is not linked to the future of Philippe Coutinho, who has been subject of three rejected offers from Barcelona.
Meanwhile, Napoli have sounded out the availability of Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, reports GianlucaDiMarzio.com.
The Italian club's current first-choice goalkeeper, Pepe Reina, has been tipped to leave the Stadio San Paolo before the close of the transfer window and the Serie A outfit are scouring the market for replacements.
Their primary target is Real Sociedad's Geronimo Rulli but senior Napoli figures have also enquired about the availability of Mignolet, who was left out of Liverpool's matchday squad for their 4-0 defeat of Arsenal on Sunday.
The Daily Mail reports that Jurgen Klopp has insisted his shock decision to drop Simon Mignolet was a one-off and his position as Liverpool's number one is undiminished.
