Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are considering a move for Bordeaux and Guinea striker Francois Kamano.

The Liverpool manager has already made it very clear, he is not in the market for any major, high price signings this window.

With a fee thought to be in the region of 20 million pounds that should not pose any kind of problem to the Merseysiders.

But according to a report from metro.co.uk, he is still looking.

He has apparently been more than looking. Reportedly expressing an interest in signing Bordeaux and Guinea forward.

The Reds had their best season in many years in the 2018-19 campaign, Runners up in the league and winning the Champions League.

Jurgen Klopp is not one to sit back and basque in the glory. He will want to build and improve on what he has already achieved.

He has made his aim this summer very clear.

No big splashes of cash. If there was a deal; that would improve the team he would consider it.

This summers business has seen an emphasis on youth with the addition of Sepp van deb Berg. Many of the academy players get playing time in the preseason and new contracts tying them to the club. Loan deals to get them more experience has also been in the works.

Having let Daniel Sturridge leave at the end of the season he feels there may be a need to bolster his strike force.

Not that it needs any help, but some support might not go amiss. Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were in ruthless form last season,

Kamano, aged 23, has a reasonable record of 29 goals in 127 appearances for Bordeaux.

His possible arrival at Anfield would see him united with international teammate Naby Keita.
