Just In: Liverpool is attempting to sign a dribbling midfielder at between £35 million and £39 million.

Liverpool still requires a high-quality, young defensive midfielder to strengthen their midfield, and Manu Kone’s name has come up again.

The Reds were connected with the French playmaker in the summer, but he sustained a knee injury during the U-21 European Championships, so we ended up luring Endo instead.

The Japanese international will turn 31 in February of next year and has made only a few starts for Jurgen Klopp.

Alexis MacAllister is not a natural deep-lying midfielder, and the Merseyside club requires a long-term solution for the No. 6 position.

According to Fichajes, Bayern Munich and Liverpool are interested in signing Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Manu Kone.

The Bavarians are looking for a solid holding midfielder and are willing to pay the clause worth £35m-£39m to entice the 22-year-old away from the Bundesliga.

However, the German champions are under pressure from Liverpool, who are actively attempting to strengthen their position in the center of the park.

Kone is not only a defensive player who likes to tackle to break play, but he is also not afraid to take on and beat opponents.

Last year, no one completed more dribbles (59) among defensive and central midfielders in the top five European leagues than the young Frenchman.

Liverpool was able to sign Ryan Gravenberch from Bayern Munich in the summer. Should they now outbid the Germans and pay £35m-£39m to sign Kone?
