Liverpool are monitoring the progress of Marseille’s Cameroon-born French winger Georges-Kévin N’Koudou, reports the Irish Independent.
They claim we’ve been scouting the 20-year-old attacker, who’s impressed for the Ligue 1 side this season.
In all competitions, N’Koudou has scored nine goals, including four in the league and four in Europe – predominantly starting from the left-wing.
The Guardian though claims Manchester United are also monitoring the youngster’s progress, and the report suggests he’ll command a hefty £15m fee to boot.
This would represent a serious profit for Marseille, who signed him from Nantes for just £1m in the summer.
N’Koudou is quick, tricky and displaying genuine potential in France, but for us – we’d much prefer we focussed our transfer attentions on signing Alex Teixeira before the window closes.
We’ve already got Jordon Ibe at the club with Sheyi Ojo coming through the ranks, so our roster of exciting young wingers is already nicely stocked. Divock Origi is also capable of playing wide, so it doesn’t seem likely to us that we’d spend such a significant sum on someone like N’Koudou just yet.
