Liverpool are reportedly one of the many European clubs interested in Paris FC teenage talent Silas Wamangituka.
Wamangituka is a striker and has scored eight goals and registered one assist in 24 Ligue 2 appearances and has played a big part in his club’s fight for promotion to Ligue 1.
Barcelona, Chelsea, Marseille, Lille, Schalke, Fiorentina and Olympiakos are among the clubs interested in signing the 19-year-old.
According to French media outlet Get French Football News, the Reds have now joined the race for Wamangituka and are thought to be especially keen on the starlet.
Not only does Silas Wamangituka have an awesome name but he is also a very promising striker. Only 19 but scoring some great goals for Paris FC. I know it is a cliche but he is very much like a young Lukaku in movement and style.

Wamangituka typically plays centrally but has been deployed as a winger before – which ticks the versatility box for Jurgen Klopp.
It’s unclear what Paris may demand for the gem, but if it’s excessive then I’d expect Klopp to look at the youngsters already at the club.
With Rhian Brewster on the verge of breaking into the senior squad, and Bobby Duncan on the cusp, it’d be a bit daft to spend money on a player that may only stunt his growth.
Liverpool fans have called out for another striker to be added to the roster and it’s likely Klopp would rather invest in youth than an already established forward.
