Liverpool have begun talks with Kingsley Coman’s representatives and the player’s father is keen to see him move to England, although Bayern Munich are fighting to keep hold of him.

German publication Sport1 report that there is firm interest from the Reds in the Frenchman and that contact has been made over a possible move.

Any deal is a long way from being completed, though, as Bayern want the 25-year-old to stay put and are keen to see him sign a contract extension, taking him beyond his current deal which ends in 2023.

Incoming manager Julian Nagelsmann is a fan of the winger and wants him to be part of his squad when he officially moves from RB Leipzig and takes over at the start of July.

The Bundesliga champions appear in a strong position to keep Coman, but Sport1 state that the Frenchman’s father is keen to push for an exit and move to the Premier League.

If the player is keen to move then a deal could certainly be done, but Liverpool would have to spend big, with Gazzetta dello Sport reporting that Bayern would be looking for €50m (£43m) for Coman’s services.

The winger only turned 25 this month but has already won league titles in three different countries, with Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern.

He has been a regular in the Bayern first team since moving from Juve in 2015, but not always a regular in the starting XI.

The 2020/21 season saw Coman make his most league starts for the club of any campaign as he started 23 Bundesliga matches, scoring five goals.

He was a regular in the Champions League as well, starting seven matches and scoring three times in the season just gone.
