Liverpool Identify This Ligue 1 Forward As A Target: What Will He Bring To Anfield?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Bild (subscription required) has claimed that Liverpool have identified Nantes forward Randal Kolo Muani as a transfer target. According to the German news outlet, the Reds believe that the French striker fits the club’s profile ahead of a potential move in the future.

Kolo Muani’s Impressive Form At Stade de la Beaujoire

Kolo Muani has enjoyed an impressive campaign with Nantes after producing a run of productive displays as the focal point of their attack. The 23-year-old has banged in seven goals and provided three assists in 19 matches for the French club this season on all fronts.

The Bondy-born sensation has caught the eye by averaging 1.4 shots, 0.8 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per game in Ligue 1. However, he needs to work on improving his link-up play as he has completed only 67% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

What Will Kolo Munai Bring To Liverpool?

Kolo Muani has decent pace under his belt and can make some good runs in behind the opposition defence. He can be a composed finisher in the final third when he is playing well on the field. The French sensation has also got a good work rate, so he won’t have any trouble settling into Jurgen Klopp’s style of play at Anfield.

Kolo Muani is good enough to enhance the overall depth of Liverpool‘s match-day squad. We can expect him to bring some pace and goals to Jurgen Klopp‘s frontline. Plus, he could serve as an ideal replacement for Divock Origi, who has got less than six months remaining in his contract at Anfield.

At 23, Kolo Muani has got a bright future ahead of him which makes him a good option for Klopp to consider during this January transfer window. He could help the Reds cope with fixture congestion better which might help them challenge for multiple trophies in the coming seasons.

Hence, Liverpool should try everything they can to lure Kolo Muani to the northwest of England as he fits the bill perfectly and could be available for a bargain fee this month as his Nantes contract is set to expire next summer.
