Some Liverpool fans have reacted on Twitter to Moses Simon's revelation this week.
The 23-year-old winger confirmed to AOI Football that Liverpool had held an interest in signing him this summer.
The Liverpool Echo reported back in June that a £10 million deal was in the offing for the Gent attacker.
Here is how some Liverpool fans reacted to what Simon said:
Has all the skills to be next MANE— Lijin John (@LijinJohn10) July 12, 2018
Decent if we get him and Shaqiri as backups for Mane and Salah— ruben norvik (@NorvikRuben) July 12, 2018
Back up for Mane.— Mo in wonderland (@MichaelpayeYNWA) July 13, 2018
You'll flourish under Klopp , LFC needs your speed, control and take ons. No doubt— Eric Zubair (@ericzubair) July 12, 2018
Play on different wings. Shaqiri is priority signing at this moment in time.— Liverpool F.C Transfer Source (@LFCCreditedNews) July 11, 2018

This is a player we want— Welcome (@Welcome08797557) July 12, 2018
Simon has bags of pace and he would undoubtledy cause problems for Premier League defenders, if he were to arrive at Anfield this summer.
The Nigeria international, who also has 20 caps for his country, clearly knows where the goal is too, having scored 21 times in 108 league appearances for the Belgian side.
Liverpool manager Klopp already has two jet-heeled wingers in the form of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah, but another one certainly wouldn't hurt as the Reds look to mount an assault on the Premier League title next term.
Simon wouldn't play every single week, but first XIs don't win Premier League crown - squads do, and the arrival of the Gent man would improve Klopp's squad.
