Liverpool have scheduled talks with the representatives of Borussia Monchengladbach’s French midfielder Manu Kone.
The 22-year-old has represented his country at under-21 level and has been a star in the Monchengladbach midfield this season, making 30 appearances in the Bundesliga this term.
Liverpool aim to sign two more midfielders this summer
Jurgen Klopp is not expected to stop with the spending following the $43m signing of Brighton and Hove Albion’s Alexis Mac Allister with Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano reporting that the Reds are set to talk to the agents of Kone and fellow Frenchman Khephren Thuram in the coming days.

No bid has been submitted yet for either of the French midfielders but both players still remain firm targets as Jurgen Klopp looks for immediate replacements to provide cover for a thin-looking squad following the summer departures of Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Brighton-bound James Milner.
