Robinson 'cannot' believe update on Liverpool bid to sign Coman
Paul Robinson has poured cold water on the idea of Liverpool signing Bayern Munich attacker Kingsley Coman.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and England number one insisted there is “no way” the Reds will fork out a big transfer fee to land the 25-year-old this summer.
According to Germany publication Sport1 (27th June), Liverpool have been in contact with the winger’s representatives over a potential transfer.
Manchester United are also said to be monitoring the Coman’s situation at the Allianz Arena.
Sky Germany (via Metro 30th June) reported that Bayern Munich want £86million for the France international who has two years remaining on his contract.
When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs if Coman was needed at Anfield, Robinson said: “I cannot see that deal coming off. No way.

“Liverpool do not have a lot of cash right now and a player like Coman is not going to come cheap.
“To break into that Liverpool front four you need to be a special player.
“Coman is a fantastic player but he is not better than what Liverpool already have so I cannot see them splashing big money on a player who might sit on the bench every week. That deal will not have much legs.”
Coman joined Bayern Munich from Juventus for a fee of £19million in July 2017.
His 200 games for the Bundesliga giants have yielded 41 goals and 50 assists.
