Premier League duo hot on the heels of 60m France World Cup debutant

Could either club be tempted into a January move?


Randal Kolo-Muani’s star continues to shine with the young French star having enjoyed a fine first half of the season for Eintracht Frankfurt this season. The 24-year-old versatile forward has racked up five goals and ten assists to date in the German top flight, earning him a call up to the French national side when Christopher Nkunku was forced to withdraw through injury.

And he made his World Cup debut against Tunisia, playing 70 minutes as his side fell to a 1-0 defeat, as his rise to prominence continued on the international stage.

His form has not gone unnoticed either, with the man who only joined Frankfurt in the summer on a free transfer from Ligue 1 already catching the eye of a pair of Premier League clubs, in the shape of Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

As per FootMercato, ‘Spurs were already very keen to recruit him last summer’, while ‘Liverpool are also seduced by the qualities and the very versatile profile’, though Sport Bild claim that it will cost a fee of around 60m euros to prise him out of Frankfurt in the coming months.

It is almost certain that he will not cost that much, but under contract until 2027 he is unlikely to come cheap. He would offer Antonio Conte another much-needed frontline option, though some would argue that a creative midfielder is just as important as a new attacker.

Meanwhile, Liverpool continue to look for ways to rejuvenate their frontline, with Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota all having joined in the past three seasons. With Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino both the wrong side of 30, they could be forced to dip into the transfer market once more.
