“Among the most serious courtiers…” journalist confirms Liverpool and spurs are vying for 69M rated French ace

Liverpool and Tottenham are both interested in Eintracht Frankfurt forward Randal Kolo Muani, according to Foot Mercato reporter Santi Aouna.

The French journalist says a number of clubs have sent scouts to the World Cup to see the 24-year-old in action, with the Reds “among the most serious courtiers”:

Muani actually joined Frankfurt on a free transfer in the summer, having left Ligue One side Nantes at the end of last season.

The France international has been a revelation since making the switch to Germany, scoring eight goals and providing eleven assists in 23 appearances.

So far this campaign, Muani has usually been deployed as a number nine but he is equally comfortable playing off either flank. That flexibility is believed to have attracted Jurgen Klopp’s side.

However, his price tag is shooting up. Aouna claims that Frankfurt may demand as much as €80m (£69m) for the player, which is an extraordinary figure considering he was a free agent six months ago.
