According to Calciomercato, Bristol City and Fulham are interested in signing one-time Liverpool target Christian Koffi from Italian side Fiorentina.

The French winger has been linked with a move away from Fiorentina this summer.

Aged 19, Koffi has already been in the limelight having come through the ranks at Monaco.

Quoted by the Daily Star, the attacker told reporters how he turned down a move to Liverpool in 2018 in favour of a switch to Serie A side Fiorentina.

“When I was presented with the two contracts and the two sporting aspects, the choice of Fio was the best. Italy was really a championship where I didn’t want to go initially, because it was a little bit contrary to my football. But after talking about it with my family, I realised that Italy was going to bring me a lot. And I was not mistaken,” Koffi explained.

But despite his promise and comparisons to Liverpool ace Sadio Mane, Koffi has struggled to get game time at Fiorentina and could now leave.

Calciomercato claim Championship duo Bristol City and Fulham are keen.

The Robins are still manager-less following the sacking of Lee Johnson. The club finished in midtable in the Championship after slipping away from the playoff race.

Bristol City dipped into the foreign market last summer, signing Han-Noah Massengo from Monaco while Hungary international Adam Nagy arrived from Bologna.

Fulham’s transfer plans this summer will depend on what league they are in.

The Whites are on course for a playoff final date with Brentford as they lead rivals Cardiff City 2-0 following their impressive first-leg victory on Wales.
