Liverpool are interested in signing Bordeaux striker Francois Kamano for £13.4million, according to Calciomercato.
The vague jargon coming out of the British press this summer has informed supporters that while Jurgen Klopp isn’t obsessed with trying to splash the cash, he is open to signing a versatile forward for the right price, as the Echo reported earlier this month.
Daniel Sturridge left the club this summer after his contract expired and the Reds now need to replace him but have yet do so, with Max Kruse telling beIN Sports that he rejected an offer from Liverpool before joining Fenerbahce.
Calciomeracto now claim that Liverpool are interested in signing Francois Kamano from Bordeaux with the Anfield outfit reportedly willing to pay €15 million (£13.3m) to sign the 23-year-old.
Liverpool are obviously unwilling to match last summer’s huge spending and are only looking to make minor moves in the market and with this in mind, Kamano fits their transfer profile for this summer.
After Kruse rejected the Reds, it would make sense that they would target Kamano who commands only a small price and managed 11 goals and an assist last season.
The Guinean would be able to adapt easily at Liverpool, with several players at the club able to speak French – his national team captain included.
The 31-cap Guinea international might not be the sensational signing that Nicolas Pepe would have been but he is certainly someone that could add value as a squad member.
It would take a truly unbelievable player like Kylian Mbappe to displace Mo Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino from the starting XI and Liverpool are simply not willing to spend the kind of money it would take to sign the Frenchman and his ilk.
