Liverpool had a €35million (£30m) bid for Kingsley Coman rejected back in June and, according to Le10 Sport, he is now dreaming of a move to the Premier League.
The Frenchman scored 8 goals and got 15 assists for Bayern Munich last season and is looking to leave the Allianz Arena.
According to Gazetta dello Sport, via beinSPORTS, a Liverpool bid was lodged worth around €35million (£30m) although they did claim that at least €50million (£42.5m) was required to sell him.
Now, according to Le10 Sport, the winger is dreaming of a move to the Premier League and he has been rejecting all contract offers from Bayern Munich and with his terms with the Bavarians set to expire in 2023, they have January and next summer to recoup a fee for him.
They claim: “Hunted by Liverpool and Manchester City, he will have no trouble finding a base in the Premier League.”
The Frenchman is a traditional winger in the sense that he prefers to play as wide as possible and is a chalk-on-the-boots type of forward whereas Mohamed Salah is more of an inside-forward, so to speak.
Coman joining Liverpool for £42.5million would be a sensational deal as he is still only 25 and is just entering his prime which means he is the perfect FSG signing as his signature wouldn’t be too expensive.
This is Michael Edwards’ final season as Liverpool’s sporting director and it would be quite fitting for him to bow out by securing one or two more top-notch signings and Coman more than fits the bill in my opinion.
Sadio Mane’s form has been on the wane for some time now and with the former Southampton star turning 30 before the end of the season, it might soon be time to replace him.
