Liverpool are reportedly in discussions with Kingsley Coman over a potential move in the summer transfer window.
According to reputed German journalist Florian Plettenberg, Liverpool appear to be stepping up their efforts to secure the services of Kinglsey Coman in the summer transfer window. Bayern Munich are eager to keep hold of the 25-year-old French international, whose father is pushing for a departure.
Kingsley Coman is one of the most decorated players in the history of the game, winning a league title in France, Italy and Germany. Since joining Bayern Munich, the Frenchman has made significant progress in his career while establishing himself as a full-fledged French international.
2020/21 proved to be a season to remember for the 25-year-old, who had a solid tally of eight goals and 15 assists in 39 appearances across all competitions, playing his part in a largely successful campaign for Bayern Munich. However, Coman is facing an uncertain future at the Allianz Arena amid a precarious contract situation. And Liverpool are among the clubs that are hot on his trails.
Liverpool are in a period of a mini transition following a difficult 2020/21 campaign, wherein they endured a dramatic fall from grace in the Premier League. Attack is one of the departments that could be addressed by Jurgen Klopp in the summer transfer window, with Kylian Mbappe believed to be their primary target.
The eagerness to bolster attack is anything but unfounded following a troublesome campaign for Sadio Mane. In addition, Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi have question marks surrounding their respective futures at Anfield. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that Liverpool could dip their toes in the transfer market for an attacking reinforcement.
To that end, Coman has emerged as one of the targets for the Reds, with the 25-year-old a viable option, seeing as he has put his injury woes behind him. The French international would also offer Liverpool the best years of his career, with the Merseyside outfit now initiating contact with the player’s entourage.
Having said that, signing him will not be straightforward, with Bayern Munich determined to keep a firm hold on the player. However, Coman could well be open to a move, with his father angling for a summer departure. Such a situation works in favour of Liverpool, and it will be interesting to see if they can move quickly to secure the services of the 25-year-old or if Bayern succeed in tying him down to a renewal.
