Reports have indicated that Borussia Monchengladbach have named their price for midfielder Manu Kone.

The 22-year-old has been the subject of recent speculation and links to Liverpool, with various sources claiming that the Reds have enquired over the youngster’s availability.

It now appears that the next steps have been made over a potential agreement, with journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeting that “talks took place this week” over a deal said to be in the region of £30 million to £35 million.

SPORT BILD described Liverpool’s interest in the player as “big” with Gladbach said to need “quick income” in the summer.

Kone joins Khephren Thuram on Liverpool’s list of reported midfield targets, with L’Equipe claiming that the Reds have been in contact with Thuram’s club OGC Nice “for a few weeks.”
