Manager confirms Liverpool want to sign Congolese teenager

Liverpool and Barcelona are both interested in signing Paris FC forward Silas Wamangituka, according to his club manager.

The 19-year-old has been in impressive form for the Ligue 2 side so far this season, scoring eight league goals and adding one assist in 24 appearances.

The Congo-born forward only made his professional debut for the French capital club back in August last year, but has drawn a number of admirers already this season.

Asked whether Liverpool and Barca are monitoring Wamangituka, Paris FC manager Stephane Gilli admitted: “It is true that there are a lot of scouts at the stadium every week, those clubs included, and many others.

“Obviously it is the director of football who will be managing that situation, but clearly we would like to keep hold of him.

“It is up to the club, the player and his agent to make the right choices.

“We want him to stay, but there is always that financial aspect, and he is a player who has a massive potential.

“He is a great lad who works hard though, and all this interest around him has not changed him. His mindset and behaviour have been very good.”
