Liverpool have chance to get closer look at Kingsley Coman tonight

Liverpool management and fans will get the chance to get a closer look at Kingsley Coman tonight.

Coman’s France side take on Switzerland in the Euro 2020 last 16 game in Bucharest at 8pm.

The Reds are interested in signing the Bayern Munich man this summer, according to Sport 1.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, via Bein Sports, Liverpool have even submitted a bid for him.

The offer was believed to be worth around £30m, although Bayern are said to want over £42m for him.

However, Sky Germany have today reported that this rumour is false, and that the German giants want over €100m (£86m) for the star.

It is unknown if Liverpool will actually push hard to sign Coman, but a good showing for France tonight could make the difference.

Despite his obvious talent, Coman is yet to start for France at Euro 2020.

In fact, he has only made the one appearance.

This came as a 66th-minute substitute against Portugal in the final group stage match. He gave a good showing, making two key passes and two tackles.

In the opening two games, Didier Deschamps turned to Ousmane Dembele to come off the bench and spark life into the attack.

However, Dembele has now been ruled out of the rest of the tournament with injury.

So, we expect Coman to be the key attacking substitution tonight.

The 25-year-old is highly unlikely to start. France will probably persist with the Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema front three.

However, don’t be surprised if Coman comes on and has a big influence on things in the second half.

A big performance could even encourage Liverpool to push ahead with their interest and sign him this summer.

One thing for sure is that excited fans will be hoping to get a good look at him.
