Manu Kone's highlights look incredible, Liverpool could be about to sign a special player

A new compilation video of Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Manu Kone has shown why Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the French wonderkid.

Liverpool already look set to complete the signing of Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister this summer, with a £60m transfer now '99 per cent done' according to Football Insider.

But the Reds are in the market for further midfield reinforcements, having allowed James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita to leave the club at the end of the season.

Liverpool were interested in signing Jude Bellingham but pulled out of the race after baulking at Borussia Dortmund's asking price for the England international, who is now expected to join Real Madrid instead in a deal worth up to £108m.


But with Jorg Schmadtke now confirmed as their new sporting director, Liverpool have turned their attention to another Bundesliga star - Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Kone.

The 22-year-old joined Monchengladbach in January 2021 from French club Toulouse and has since gone on to make 60 appearances for the German club, scoring four goals.


German outlet BILD (via the Daily Mail) report that Liverpool have been in contact with Kone's representatives to express their interest in the midfielder.


It is claimed that Monchengladbach will seek around £35-40m for the French U21 international.

Kone is contracted to Monchengladbach until at least 2025, with the club holding the option of a further year.

What would Kone bring to Liverpool?

A compilation video of Kone, produced by Twitter account HugoFilmz28, is circulating on social media and highlights Kone's strengths between both boxes.


His technical and athletic ability is on full show, with a number of clips showcasing the midfielder's calmness under pressure.

He is also shown picking out key passes in the final third, winning fouls with pieces of skill and also chipping in with goals.

Liverpool could face competition for his signature, however, with Manchester United also reportedly interested.


Kone has previously spoken of his pride at being linked with top clubs in European football, leaving the door open for a summer transfer.

Speaking in March, he told Le Parisien: "At the moment, I am in Monchengladbach.

"I live well with rumours, I don't pay attention to everything that is said. It's more my entourage and my friends who send me the articles.

"It's a source of pride for them [entourage and friends] to see my name associated with big clubs, but it doesn't make me hot or cold. I prefer to finish my season quietly.


"Afterwards, what must happen will happen."
