CONCLUDED: Manu Kone transfer to Liverpool has been Finalized as “recent” bid accepted

In a cunning final week, Liverpool can fill the biggest gaps in the team with just two transfer transfers, courtesy of an enticing Manu Koné ‘discount’.


The transfer window is officially in its last week for Liverpool. It was doubtful that FSG would be going down to the wire anytime soon after a frantic deadline-day loan deal for Arthur Melo last summer, but work still needs to be done.


Wataru Endō’s arrival and Stefan Bajčetić’s injured return have at least left Liverpool with a lean lineup across the board, with Jürgen Klopp now having access to a few established defensive midfielders. However, the little setback for Ibrahima Konaté, one of several backs who are infamously prone to injuries, could serve as a helpful warning.


Nothing more would prepare Liverpool for another season that could be disrupted at any time by injuries. A quadruple push amidst two lackluster seasons reveals a wasted potential narrative, with too much left to chance in terms of possible crucial player injuries.


In comparison, Liverpool’s future might be drastically changed with only two astute transfer decisions made in this last week. They wouldn’t have to spend a fortune either, as there were realistic alternatives that would have cost far less than the offer FSG was willing to make for Moisés Caicedo before he decided to join Chelsea, particularly given the apparent markdown on Manu Koné.


After being linked to Liverpool earlier in the summer, Koné’s injury sustained at the European U21 Championship caused him to vanish from view. However, upon his return from that, Christian Falk of BILD asserts that the asking price has decreased.


Naturally, this is partially due to worries about possible recurrences, since Liverpool has previously suffered from injury-prone midfield players. However, it’s also a result of the fact that many of the first suitors have moved on, possibly benefiting the Reds.
