Liverpool emerge favourite to seal deal for  €25m-rated in-demand star, player wants move

Liverpool have been heavily involved in the transfer window but Klopp is yet searching for options to bolster his squad before the close of the window.

Liverpool have emerged as front runners for the signature of French  and Inter Milan midfield Geoffrey Kondogbia, this is according to Sun, via Gazzetta dello Sport .

Geoffrey Kondogbia joined the San Siro outfit in the summer of 2015 from Monaco but he has seen his stock fallen.The 24-year-old has struggled to play regularly for the club and the report claims he has handed Luciano Spalletti a transfer request, so as to fulfill his dream of starring regularly.

Inter Milan have completed deals for midfielders Matias Vecino and Borja Valero from Fiorentina this summer, which means Kondogbia has fallen further down the selection pecking order of the Nerazurris.

Given his desire to move, Liverpool who have been credited with interest for the player in the past, may reignite their interest in signing him. However, Tottenham are believed to be keenly interested.

Liverpool are currently without midfielder Adam Lallana, who sustained an injury and will be out of action for three months. The Reds also sold Lucas Leiva earlier in the summer, leaving Klopp in the need for a midfielder.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Naby Keita but all their efforts to sign him has fallen on the brick wall.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are yet to bolster their squad in this transfer window but it is left to be seen if they will go for the French.

He is valued at €25million-€30million.
