After being linked with RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano, Liverpool fans are now urging the club to snap up the Frenchman this summer.
According to AS, Upamecano is on Liverpool’s ‘three-man shortlist’ to replace Dejan Lovren in the upcoming transfer window.
In Leipzig’s most recent match – which was their 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League – the centre-back put in a superb shift across the backline. In the heart of his side’s back three, Upamecano completed six tackles, five clearances and wasn’t dribbled past a single time. He also won 10 duels out of 15 attempted and completed 3/3 dribbles (via Sofascore).
The French youth international is currently valued at £45million (via Transfermarkt).
Despite Joe Gomez proving a good partner for Virgil van Dijk in defence, fans would love to see Upamecano join Liverpool’s ranks. One Reds supporter has boasted that the French centre-half is ‘one of the best players’ they’ve ever watched, whilst another has branded Upamecano an ‘unreal prospect’.
Upamecano please, he looks immense, doubt he will settle for a bench place

^ this. He and VVD together is an unreal prospect.

Gimenez or Upamecano would be both very good buys

Upamecano I’ve wanted him for years

Upamecano is the best option, young and so much potential. He will become of the best CB in the world.

worth every penny

None of them would want to play backup. But Upamecano is one of the best players I’ve ever watched live. He was incredible against spurs.

What do you think, Liverpool fans? Is there room for Dayot Upamecano alongside van Dijk?
