The departure of Roberto Firmino means that the Reds may be searching the market for a replacement and may have shortlisted one in the name of Randal Kolo Muani, according to Bild.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s young striker joined them on a free transfer last summer and is enjoying an impressive debut season, with 30 goal contributions in all competitions.

Liverpool showed their interest pre-Eintracht Frankfurt is now back on their radar.

But for now, the French prospect is only ‘being watched’ by Jurgen Klopp’s team, similar to Manchester United.

Kolo Muani was a part of Didier Deschamp’s final-reaching World Cup squad in Qatar, but will, unfortunately, be remembered for missing a chance late on to take the trophy home for his nation.

He managed to impress with his short features, though, earning interest from two of England’s most decorated clubs.

The 24-year-old is in contract with his current side until 2027, but his contract is without a release clause.

Reports say Frankfurt’s sporting director Markus Krosche is keen on the Frenchman staying put for one season, with his development in his best interests.

However, this may not stop Kolo Muani from accepting a new challenge elsewhere.

He would join a squad full of attacking prowess, and with competition for places at a high standard as of late, Kolo Muani may be best placed in the Bundesliga for the time being.
