Moses Simon confirms Liverpool transfer interest
- Nigeria International did confirm Reds' interest
- Liverpool have already added Shaqiri and are looking for extra attacking options
It’s understood the £10million-rated Nigeria international is being lined up by the Reds to provide competition for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane on Merseyside.
Asked about the rumors, Simon told AOI Football: ‘Well, for now, I’m still a player of KAA Gent; obviously, there was interest from Liverpool but nothing is concrete for now.
'I’m currently in Holland with the rest of the squad and we are getting ready for the new season. ‘We have a game against PAOK in two days; hopefully, I might play in that one.’
Simon has scored 21 goals in 136 appearances for Gent since joining the club back in 2015 but the 22-year-old winger has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield in recent weeks.
Liverpool have been keeping tabs on Simon for some time and the forward has emerged as a serious target, with Jurgen Klopp on the hunt for attacking reinforcements ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.
