Liverpool are eyeing a move for Nigeria international winger Moses
Simon.
The
22-year-old is on the Reds radar as they continue their recruitment
drive this summer with Jurgen Klopp keen to bolster his attacking
options.
Simon,
who has been tracked by several Premier League clubs, has a year left
remaining on his contract and is expected to command a fee of around
£10million from Belgian side Gent.

He has been heavily scouted by Liverpool as they seek pacy backup to
regular wide man Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Simon
is capable of playing on either flank but spent much of this season
on the left wing, where he contributed six goals and three assists in
helping Gent finish in fourth in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League.

Simon suffered personal heartbreak last week when it was confirmed he
would miss the forthcoming World Cup finals in Russia.
The
player has been suffering from a hip injury, and while he is expected
to be available in three weeks, Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr chose not
to include him in his 23-man squad.
I
will definitely be back soon, stronger and better,” said Simon.
To
the Super Eagles, I wish you all the best of luck in Russia – go
and make us proud.”
Klopp
wants to increase the strength in depth of his squad this summer.

Naby Keita and Fabinho have already been signed as part of a midfield
overhaul, while the Reds are continuing to work on a move for
£60m-rated Lyon attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir.
Liverpool
are also likely to move for a new goalkeeper with speculation over
Simon Mignolet’s future. Culled from
