Liverpool are interested in signing Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani, with Roberto Firmino’s departure from Anfield being official
According to SportBild, the Brazilian’s exit could have a ripple effect in the transfer market, causing the Bundesliga club to be concerned.
With Firmino departing, the Reds are allegedly interested in signing the 24-year-old.
Before joining Frankfurt last summer, the French international was on Liverpool’s radar.
According to the article, he is now back on their radar, and they are joined by arch-rivals Manchester United.
Muani’s contract does not expire until 2027, thus it is estimated that luring him away from the German club will cost £87.5 million.
The player could allegedly explore a move if a top team provides him what he calls the ‘appropriate sporting perspective’.
Liverpool is interested in signing him. Muani
With Firmino clearly departing the club when his contract expires, this speculation seemed too far-fetched for a realistic summer window at Anfield.
Liverpool sorely needs midfield reinforcements this summer, and it doesn’t appear that Jurgen Klopp will be handed the funds he requires to get his squad in shape and back where they belong.
With three new players needed in the middle, as well as an extra defender, another forward will be low on the Reds’ priority list.
Spending £87.5 million on a player who was available for free last summer would be bad business, especially for a team that needs to spend its money elsewhere.
Although Muani has proven to be an exceptional attacker, Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo have previously covered Klopp at Liverpool.
