Now, Barca are in the hunt and they're the favourites to land the talented French star for between €70-90 million. Lemar is currently on World Cup duty with France, and it's believed he's finally ready to leave Monaco for the Camp Nou.
A series of injuries stilted Lemar's campaign last season. The year before, he helped Monaco win the Ligue 1 title and took them to the semifinal stage of the Champions League for the first time in 13 years. Last season, he managed just two goals in 27 league appearances as the club finished 13 points behind PSG in second.
