As per L’Equipe (via Get French Football News), Liverpool are interested in signing Dayot Upamecano from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig.
The report says that the German outfit are prepared to let the Frenchman leave for €60m (£52.4m), and there are a number of clubs interested in him alongside the Reds – Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona and some Italian sides are also said to be in pursuit.
The 21-year-old has been in good form this term, having picked up an average WhoScored rating on 7.23 in the German top flight, and it appears that he is a sought-after defender. However, it would seem that the Liverpool supporters are torn over whether they would like to see him at Anfield, with some behind the idea and some against it.

Miles better than Gomez .
Wound be a sensational signing , be far more solid and give Trent even more licence to provide these assists down the right side . . . 👍👍👍👍

Van Dijk will be 30 soon and we can have Gomez and Dayot as our permanent partnership for a decade. But that’s too good to be true

Don’t see the point in this when he’s going to be sitting on the bench.. https://t.co/5cpJ9awSC6

so then we’re not getting him because Gonez is better and Dayot won’t start https://t.co/5eCLQVjkEj

Not happening. Nowhere near as good as Gomez so we won’t pay 60 million for a back up https://t.co/16gmrYODL6
