Liverpool Eyeing Manu Kone: Pundit Expects Active Summer at Anfield


Liverpool is preparing for a “momentous summer” in the transfer market, amid speculation linking Borussia Monchengladbach’s talented midfielder, Manu Kone, with a move to Anfield. Pundit Tony Cascarino suggests that Kone is on his way to Liverpool, adding to the club’s recent signing of Argentina World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister.

Liverpool Targets Rising Star Manu Kone

Cascarino’s comments indicate Liverpool’s keen interest in Manu Kone, a promising French Under-21 international. In a recent interview, he revealed:

“Manu Kone is one they have been looking at. It has been talked about in France that he is going to Liverpool.” 

Cascarino expressed his desire for Liverpool to sign West Ham United captain Declan Rice as well, although he acknowledged that the player’s high price tag would make it highly unlikely for the Reds to secure his signature.

The French Sensation

Manu Kone has been making a name for himself in the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach. The 22-year-old midfielder has made 60 appearances for the German club, impressing with his versatility and skills in both defensive and offensive positions. While primarily operating as a central midfielder, Kone’s standout attribute is his exceptional dribbling ability. Furthermore, he completed the second-highest number of successful take-ons among all central midfielders in the Bundesliga last season. Only behind Jude Bellingham.

Competition for Kone’s Signature

The race for Manu Kone is heating up, with Aston Villa and Wolverhampton reportedly joining the pursuit. Borussia Monchengladbach is willing to sell the talented youngster for a modest fee of £30 million in order to balance their books, making him an attractive prospect for potential suitors. Additionally, Kone’s youth, affordability, and versatility have caught the attention of all three interested clubs.

Anfield Awaits an Exciting Summer

Liverpool’s ambitions for the upcoming season necessitate significant squad reinforcements. The club is expected to be active in the transfer market. While Kone may not be the final piece in Liverpool’s midfield puzzle. Nonetheless, pursuit of talented young players indicates the club’s proactive approach to maintain competitiveness and unpredictability.

Rumors and speculations continue to circulate, with little official confirmation regarding Liverpool’s potential signings. However, the club’s determination to strengthen the squad, coupled with competition from other clubs, sets the stage for a thrilling and potentially transformative summer transfer window at Anfield.
