Liverpool set to make offer to sign 24-year-old Bundesliga ‘Assist king’
Liverpool is anticipated to make a signing offer for Eintracht Frankfurt forward Randal Kolo Muani this summer, according to German publication Bild.
The Frenchman made a terrific acquisition for the Bundesliga team, contributing to 28 goals in 29 games since he signed on a free transfer from Nantes last year.
According to a recent report by Bild, Liverpool is one of the teams anticipated to submit a formal offer for the striker this summer due to the potential for intense interest in him.
Frankfurt are looking for a staggering £89 million to sell the 24-year-old ‘assist king‘.
Liverpool have spent huge money on strikers in the past few transfer windows. Diogo Jota was signed in 2020 and last summer, they brought in Darwin Nunez from Benfica.
Cody Gakpo was added to the squad from PSV Eindhoven during the winter transfer window. Liverpool now have four strikers with Roberto Firmino still contracted to them.
Firmino could leave when his contract expires on June 30 but we don’t see the Merseyside giants spending a club-record fee to land Muani at the end of the season.
They are gifted with plenty of goalgetters in the squad and their main focus for the summer could be in the midfield department where they have been inconsistent this term.
Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara have regressed over the course of the campaign. James Milner, Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have also struggled.
There could be a complete overhaul of their midfield this summer. A striker is the least of the priorities for manager Jurgen Klopp who has overseen a difficult league season.
Liverpool are presently ninth in the Premier League table and 10 points behind the top four. They have a lot of work to do in order to qualify for the Champions League again.
