According to report, Klopp is pressing to sign a £38.8 million dribbler

Manu Kone is once again in the spotlight as Liverpool looks to improve their midfield.

According to Media Foot, the Mereysiders were interested in the young French midfielder back in August 2022.

In contrast, Football Transfers reported in January 2023 that the Anfield club had already held negotiations to entice the 22-year-old away from Borussia Monchengladbach.

According to the most recent reports, Jurgen Klopp is now pushing to finally sign Kone during the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to Bild, Klopp wants the central midfielder, and the Reds’ attempts to entice him are “big” and “real.”.

According to a reputable German media outlet, Liverpool has gotten in touch with the player’s management to try and sign him.

The six-time European champions are said to have inquired about the potential cost of signing the Bundesliga player, and Monchengladbach reportedly provided a quote of around £38.8 million (45 million euros).

Manu Kone completed the most dribbles among holding and creative midfielders in Europe’s top 5 leagues last season.

The youngster is a pressing machine, which is a quality that Klopp values in players who can consistently press and counterpress to win the ball.

With only 43 points in the league, Monchengladbach had their worst year in the previous 12 years. Likewise, Kone’s season was uneven with a few subpar performances, but Bild insists that he is a talented player.
