Replacing Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and James Milner, Liverpool welcomed Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Watarau Endo, and Ryan Gravenberch.
The club has succeeded in drastically revamping its midfield, and Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Quadio Koné, then a member of the France U-21 national team, was rumored throughout the transfer market last summer to be a potential new player.
Now that speculation has died down, and midfield reinforcements are no longer a priority for Liverpool.
Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist, shared progress on the player’s departure and reported that although he will not be moving this winter, interest has been received from clubs in various countries.
“It’s gone a bit quiet on Manu Kone but interest is still there,”
“It looks like there is nothing concrete for January. Obviously many top clubs are monitoring him, clubs from France, Germany, Italy, England too, but it’s just scouting for now, no concrete talks taking place and I think a summer move is more realistic.”CaughtOffside
