Liverpool are plotting a late bid to sign Bordeaux attacker Francois Kamano as Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his squad during the closing days of the window, according to reports via TeamTalk.
Klopp has been extremely quiet in the market so far as Liverpool have only signed teenagers Harvey Elliott and Sepp van den Berg this summer with the Reds boss insisting he doesn’t need to spend big on established players.
Liverpool won the Champions League last season and finished just one point behind Manchester City in the Premier League so Klopp is obviously confident his current squad is more than capable of competing for major honours.
However, the Reds have been tipped to sign a versatile attacker during the closing stages of the window as Liverpool could do with someone to help lighten the load on the the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino this season.
Kamano has emerged as a potential target and TeamTalk are citing reports which originate from the Sun that claim Liverpool are now eyeing a late move to sign the Bordeaux attacker before the window closes on August 8.
The report says the French outfit are willing to sell if a deal worth £15m up front plus £5m in add-ons is put on the table this summer, which seems reasonable given Kamano’s potential.
The 23-year-old came through the youth ranks at Bastia and has established himself as an important first team player since joining Bordeaux in 2016 with 13 goals and 4 assists in all competitions last season.
Kamano is predominantly a left winger but he’s comfortable playing anywhere across the front three so he’d provide Klopp with a solid back-up for his star trio in attack if he moves to Anfield this summer.
