Report: Club will now consider offers for 24-year-old Liverpool target, he impressed at the World Cup

A report from The Athletic suggests that Eintracht Frankfurt will consider offers for Liverpool target Randal Kolo Muani in January.

French outlet Foot Mercato suggested earlier this month that Liverpool have set their sights on the forward.

Kolo Muani was signed by Frankfurt on a free transfer in the summer after leaving FC Nantes.

It proved to be one of the best pieces of business conducted by any side in the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old has already scored five goals and provided 10 assists in 14 league appearances.

His form earned him a late call-up to the French national team at the World Cup.

Kolo Muani replaced Christopher Nkunku after he picked up an injury, and really impressed for Les Bleus.

His introduction in the World Cup Final helped France achieve an improbably comeback.

He won France’s first penalty after getting the better of Nicolas Otamendi, and nearly won his country the whole thing, but Emi Martinez fantastically saved his last-minute effort.

After his fantastic performances in Germany and Qatar, Kolo Muani is likely to have a significant price tag.

Foot Mercato believe Frankfurt could demand up to £69m for the 24-year-old.

It would be a huge profit on a player they’ve owned for less than six months, and an incredible piece of business.

Jurgen Klopp hasn’t ruled out Liverpool signing a new attacker in January if the opportunity arises.

As relayed by Fabrizio Romano, Klopp pointed to their signing of Luis Diaz last January as an example of the business that can be done during the season.

“We have two long-term injuries up front. Last January, Luis Diaz came in which was very helpful for that part of the season,” Klopp said.

“Doing something similar this time, if it was a positive move – why not?”

Kolo Muani can play across the front three, and could be an ideal signing to help deal with Diaz’s and Diogo Jota’s injuries.

Tottenham have also shown an interest in the Frenchman as they look to add an additional forward to their squad.

It’s no surprise that Frankfurt are willing to consider offers for Kolo Muani in January.

With two of the Premier League’s biggest clubs thinking about moves, they could make a very quick profit next month.
