Kingsley Coman has been subject to reported transfer interest from Liverpool and Manchester City in recent days with the Frenchman supposedly wanting to leave Bayern Munich.
Paris-born Coman has been on the books in Bavaria since 2017, scoring 32 goals in 143 games and famously scoring the winner in the Champions League final against his former side Paris Saint-Germain in 2019.
However with just two years left on his contract and Liverpool and Manchester City only making one key signing each over the summer, reports have surfaced about a potential move to the north west for Coman.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s loyalty to his famed front three means Coman would be hard-pressed for game time – but with a few sales and rotations, Klopp would easily find a game for the Frenchman.
Express Sport takes a look at Liverpool’s potential XI if he was to join.

Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
Alisson Becker is by far and away Liverpool’s best goalkeeper, if not the Premier League’s best.
His absence can only be felt when Adrian plays, as the Brazilian is noted for his reliability.
Caoimhin Kelleher is a keeper with a lot of potential, but for now he is nowhere near the world-class talent that Alisson is.
Defence: Trent-Alexander Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Andrew Robertson

Alexander-Arnold and Robertson don’t have any decent competition to step in for them in big games, making their positions stable.
And despite Joel Matip proving great backup and Ibrahima Konate joining for a £36million fee, Gomez and van Dijk’s partnership in the title-winning season was too good to dismiss.
Midfield: Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Harvey Elliott
Midfield is a hard choice for Jurgen Klopp, although his blend of experience and youth could be the key to another title-winning side.
Henderson and Fabinho would provide the knowhow and guile needed to endure an entire Premier League season.
And with Elliott shining in central midfield after his loan at Blackburn Rovers expired, there is no reason for him to be excluded.
Attack: Kingsley Coman, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane
Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota are very unfortunate to miss out on the attacking slots here, but with Salah and Mane being the two kingpins of Liverpool’s attack over the years, they both have to miss out.
Salah’s finishing prowess and attacking movement would make him an exceptional player at striker.
And with Coman and Mane’s pace on the wings, Liverpool would be even more of a force to be reckoned with.
