Liverpool held negotiations with 19-year-old Ligue 1 forward

The Merseyside giants are keeping a close eye on Stade Rennais winger Kamaldeen Sulemana. Ghana international has been a revelation at the French club following his transfer earlier in the summer. Sulemana has so far played 20 games for the Ligue 1 club, scoring five times and assisting two more.

It represents a decent return for a footballer who is enjoying his first taste of European football. Primarily a left-winger, Kamaldeen is capable of playing anywhere along the frontline. Despite his young age, the 19-year-old winger is already a full international for Ghana and has won two caps for their national side.

Not many footballers can outshine Jeremy Doku at Stade Rennais, but the Ghanaian attacker has managed to do only that in a clear show of his ability. His displays have not gone unnoticed on Merseyside, and the Reds are keeping close tabs on his progress.

Liverpool, who have decided to end their pursuit of Jeremy Doku, already have two of the best African attackers in the game today in Sadio Mane and Mo Salah. Both are, however, not getting any younger and will need replacing sooner or later.

The Reds will get an early taste of life without the duo when they leave the team to participate in next January’s African Cup of Nations. How Liverpool cope in their absence could determine where the club stand come to the end of the campaign. Whether the Reds make a move for the footballer in winter or next summer stays to be seen.
