Tottenham have trick up sleeve as one of two new rivals for Liverpool target

Liverpool have been joined in the race for Kingsley Coman by another Premier League side and one of his former clubs, according to a Spanish report.

Still only 25, Coman has enjoyed an extraordinarily successful career so far. He has won the league title in every year since he became a professional, winning twice each with PSG and Juventus and six with his current club Bayern Munich. On top of all that, he has won 14 other trophies between those clubs.

Coman has a contract with Bayern until 2023, so there could be building interest in his signature.

At present, the primary concern for Coman is his physical state after undergoing heart surgery following the discovery of a minor irregularity. Bayern expect him to take two weeks to recuperate.

After that, he should be back showing his talents on the pitch – and there will be several clubs watching.

According to a report from Spanish site Fichajes, Coman has three specific suitors. One is Liverpool, who have been mentioned as admirers for a while now. Reports earlier this month spoke of his dream of playing in the Premier League and how the Reds could satisfy it.

They will need to replenish their attack at some point; Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino will all be 30 by the end of the season. The former is still at the top of his game, but has his own contract uncertainty like Coman, while Mane and Firmino’s levels have dropped.

The report from Fichajes points to this fact while addressing their interest in Coman. Bayern’s winger could be an ideal reinforcement to reignite the spark in Liverpool’s frontline.

Extra competition for Coman

But Liverpool are not the only team who could look to take him to England. According to Fichajes, Tottenham Hotspur are also keen to sign him.

It is believed that Spurs need further depth in attack, as highlighted by their current injury issues there. Coincidentally, their managing director Fabio Paratici was at Juventus when they signed him.

In fact, Juventus themselves are the third suitor for Coman that Fichajes mention. After losing Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, it will be a long process to replace him. Moise Kean returned, but they will need further options in future and a return for Coman could suffice.

The report provides little detail of how much Coman could cost. However, they expect him to be on the market in 2022 if he does not renew his contract with Bayern.

He would no doubt be an exciting option for whoever signs him and possibly a lucky charm in any title race.
