Eintracht Frankfurt superstar Randal Kolo Muani has hinted that he has dreams of playing for a bigger club amid rumours that Liverpool want to sign the French striker.
Speaking to L’Equipe, the Bundesliga sensation revealed that talks have taken place with his team about a potential move this summer after a breakout year for Frankfurt, with Kolo Muani bagging an incredible 16 goals in all competitions as well as registering ten assists.
As a result, transfer interest has spiked in the former FC Nantes superstar, with SportBild recently reporting that Liverpool are keeping an eye on Kolo Muani’s situation, though Frankfurt have already placed a €100m (£88m) price tag on the France international ahead of this summer.
Despite the likelihood of a summer move being small, Kolo Muani still hinted that an exit could be on the cards, with the striker saying: “We [my team] have talked about it a lot already, but I try to be focused on my club. We continue our performances and we will see this summer. Afterwards, I always dreamed of playing for a big club.”
With an incredible season already in the bag, it’s no surprise why Kolo Muani is dreaming big at this stage of his career, with Liverpool’s interest a testament as to how good the winger has been for Frankfurt and for France over the last few months.
Indeed, Kolo Muani’s latest comments will be a big boost for Liverpool. Yet given what the Reds actually need this summer, a bid for the Frankfurt forward will be nothing short of needless from Jurgen Klopp’s side, who need midfielders and defenders above anything else.
Liverpool must shelve signing Kolo Muani for some time
Kolo Muani is clearly a superstar in the making, with the attacker putting up some of the best numbers in Europe this season in what has been a breakout year for the Frankfurt star. Yet for Liverpool, they simply can’t afford to add to their attacking ranks given the problems they have elsewhere in the squad.
The Reds’ midfield is in desperate need of work as is the backline, with quality depth needed in both positions if Liverpool are to get back to their best for next season. And for Klopp, that will mean shelving the thought of signing Kolo Muani for a good few windows.
