Fiorentina winger Christian Koffi has revealed why he turned down the chance to join Liverpool from Monaco in the summer of 2018, despite strong interest from the Premier League leaders.

The 19-year-old was on the move two summers ago after rejecting a professional contract at French club Monaco, and Liverpool held talks with the French-Ivorian over a switch to Merseyside.

Koffi turned down the advances of Jurgen Klopp's side, opting to make the move to La Viola instead.And the teenager has revealed that he snubbed The Reds because he felt he was not ready to make the big step up to the Premier League club.

'I was very flattered by the interest of Liverpool, but I chose Fiorentina for my progress.

'Liverpool is more than a big club and I was not ready at this time, especially in 2018.

Despite seeking first team game time elsewhere, Koffi is yet to break into Fiorentina's senior squad, but he says that learning from the likes of Franck Ribery has proved an invaluable experience.

Koffi has featured regularly for Fiorentina's youth team - the Primavera - where he has scored eight goals and provided nine assists in 58 outings.
