Monaco ace Lemar trimmed into 7/4 to join Liverpool
Anfield outfit could be planning for Coutinho exit
Liverpool are the new favourites at 7/4 with Coral to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco.
It comes after Coral traders saw a surge of bets for the Frenchman joining the Merseyside club in the last couple of hours.
Chelsea are now second best in the betting at 9/2 to capture the player, while Arsenal, who have been favourites for a number of weeks, are out to 6/1.
Coral’s John Hill said: “With the Coutinho deal expected to go through over the next few days, punters think Liverpool are going spend some of that money on Thomas Lemar as he has been heavily backed to move to Anfield.”
The 22-year-old has scored twice and supplied four assists for reigning champions Monaco in Ligue 1 this season.
Lemar is contracted to the French side until 2020, and any deal would be worth at least £60m.
But with Liverpool seemingly poised to land up to £150m in Philippe Coutinho’s sale to Barcelona, the Anfield outfit won’t be out of pocket.

7/4 Liverpool, 9/2 Chelsea, 6/1 Arsenal, 10/1 Barcelona, 16/1 Tottenham
