Liverpool have reportedly made ‘contact’ with the representatives of Kingsley Coman over a deal to sign the winger from Bayern Munich.
Coman has been offered to Premier League clubs after failing to agree terms on a new deal with the Bundesliga champions, with the France international having two years remaining on his current contract at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munich are understood to want the 25-year-old to sign an extension with new manager Julian Nagelsmann keen to keep Coman at the club, though the player’s management are reportedly pushing for a move to England after contract talks broke down over salary demands.
According to German outlet, Sport1, Liverpool are prepared to offer the star an avenue out of Bayern this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to inject new life into his forward line, reports in Italy reporting an opening bid of €35m has been rejected.
Coman – whose incredible silverware collection already includes 10 league titles across spells with PSG, Juventus and Bayern – is comfortable on both flanks and is currently with the France squad at Euro 2020.
Bayern are understood to be ‘relaxed’ about his situation despite interest from Merseyside, though a bid in the region of €50m (£43m) could be enough to convince the Germans to sell the winger should he fail to agree terms on a new deal.
Manchester United have previously been linked and retain an interest, though the Red Devils are unlikely to make an approach unless a deal for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho fails to materialise.
