Liverpool have been linked with a move for the Eintracht Frankfurt forward Randal Kolo Muani.
According to a report from RMCsport, Liverpool are looking to improve their attacking options and they have identified the 24-year-old French international as a potential target.
However, they are not the only Premier League club looking to sign the Bundesliga forward and they will face competition from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool will need to add more goals to their squad, especially after the underwhelming numbers from summer signing Darwin Nunez. The Uruguayan has performed well on the whole but his finishing leaves a lot to be desired.
The Reds have been overly reliant on Mohamed Salah for goals this season and the signing of Kolo Muani will add more depth to their attack.
Apparently, the Bundesliga star could cost around €60 million and it remains to be seen whether Liverpool are prepared to spend that kind of money for the player.
Meanwhile, Tottenham need to bring in an alternative to Harry Kane and the 24-year-old could share the goal-scoring burden alongside the England international.
Kolo Muani can play in wide areas as well as a center forward. He has 8 goals and 11 assists to his name across all competitions for Eintracht Frankfurt this season and he has the potential to thrive in a top club like Liverpool.
Meanwhile, the Reds will have to strengthen the other areas of their squad as well, and splashing out a sum of around €60 million on a backup attacker might not be a sensible bit of business.
‘What A Player’: Liverpool-mad Pundit Says ‘massive Mistake’ Club Let £30 mιllιon Star Join Arsenal
Because Martin Odegaard can now “perform in any team in the world,” according to Jose Enrique, Real Madrid committed a “big error” by allowing him to sign with Arsenal on a permanent basis in 2021.
Former Manchester United player Rio Ferdinand recently complimented the captain of Arsenal and compared him to Mesut Ozil at his best. The former Liverpool left-back was responding to the legendary man from Manchester United’s praise.
Since being given the armband by Mikel Arteta in the summer, Odegaard has performed for the current Premier League leaders, and Enrique thinks the initial deal to sign him was “amazing.”
Real Madrid loaned Odegaard to north London at first, and he later returned to the La Liga powerhouses before being permanently acquired by Arsenal for £30 million (Sky Sports).
He is a fantastic playmaker in the middle of the field with the ability to put the ball between the legs of an opponent inside of their box and a pinpoint and exceptional pass weight. Odegaard was reportedly good when he was a 15-year-old training with Liverpool.
Enrique thinks Carlo Ancelotti erred by allowing Luka Modric to depart, despite the fact that he and other Real Madrid players continue to put on displays deserving of the Ballon d’Or.
Enrique thought Rio Ferdinand’s praise was “really well deserved.” What a player—and how humble. He can help any squad in the globe.
He was let go by Real Madrid, which was a terrible mistake. At roughly 40 million euros, the deal for Arsenal is incredible.
ODEGAARD LEADING BY EXAMPLE
The past two captains of Arsenal, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Granit Xhaka, didn’t exactly project a favorable picture of themselves when they lost the armband.
Even though Xhaka has reformed and won back the supporters’ love, the role hasn’t been very advantageous for Arsenal over time.
As a result, Odegaard was put under a lot of pressure when Arteta named him captain, but he handled it just like he did for Norway.
Odegaard is leading by example on the field even though he may not be as outspoken as a player like Xhaka. The Swiss international effectively helps Odegaard by taking the initiative without wearing the armband.
