Liverpool plan 'surprise' move for Monaco striker - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly planning to take advantage of Monaco dropping out of Ligue 1 by making an approach for Benjamin Moukandjo.

According to Metro, the Reds are considering a 'surprise' move the 22-year-old in order to reinforce their forward ranks during the imminent transfer window.

The Cameroon under-20 striker made 15 appearances - scoring three goals - for Monaco last season after moving to the Stade Louis II in January, but failed to prevent the principality club from being relegated.

Moukandjo had spent the previous season in Ligue 2 with Nimes and, if speculation is to be believed, has caught the attention of Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli.


A versatile forward, able to operate through the middle or on the wing, Moukandjo is one of a number of France-based players apparently on the Liverpool radar.

Liverpool are also said to be chasing Lille attacker Gervinho and Rennes star Sylvain Marveaux in their pursuit of more potent wide options.

Metro reports that Moukandjo has been identified by Liverpool as an alternative to Gervinho should the Ivorian opt not to move to Anfield, with the 24-year-old expected to make a decision on his future this week.
