RB Leipzig defender Nordi Mukiele, who has been linked with a move to LFC by French outlet Le10Sport, scored a thunder-cracker of a goal this afternoon.
Capitalising on an error by Hertha Berlin’s Matteo Guendouzi, currently on loan from fellow Premier League side Arsenal, the young Frenchman slapped a loose ball into the top-right corner to extend his side’ lead to 2-0.
It was an extremely well-taken chance by Mukiele, but it remains to be seen how serious the links are between the defender and LFC.
Only time will tell, but he looks like a real hotshot!
Take a look at the video below (via BT Sport):
Well that's awkward… 😬

I hope someone is allowed to post the up-close replay … Tyler absolutely picks Guendouzi’s pocket and then beautifully sets up Mukiele in one fluid motion. #USMNT #BSCRBL 🇩🇪 🇺🇸pic.twitter.com/ES1VMA987l
