For Liverpool, the reinforcement of the midfielders, the biggest challenge of the summer, made steady progress. Starting with Alexis Mac Allister, the team welcomed Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo, and Ryan Gravenberch.
Along with the new players, the names of numerous young midfielders hit the media as candidates. One of them is Manu Coné, a French U-21 midfielder from Borussia Monchengladbach, who is still being linked with Liverpool after the summer.
Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist, also continuously updated the situation of the player and reported that he may leave his current team in 2024, as the player wants a new challenge.
“Kone could also be one to watch in January as it’s not true that he’s signed a new contract with Borussia Monchengladbach, despite reports elsewhere.”
“Kone’s current contract is valid until 2026, but he could leave in 2024. We’ll have to see what happens, though, because at the moment there are no contacts or negotiations ongoing with any other clubs, despite interest in him during the summer.”
“Juventus and Liverpool were two clubs who considered him as an option but then did not call again after August. So we will see in 2024 what happens, but the player remains open to trying a new experience, while his asking price would likely be around €40m (to) €45m.”Caught Offside
Liverpool is intensifying its interest in Fluminense midfielder Andre, and at the moment he is the first choice for the club.
Therefore, it is hard to believe that Liverpool will make another move for the French U-21 midfielder, but what will happen?
