Liverpool are interested in RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano.The Sunday World says Liverpool have identified Upamecano as their main transfer target as they look to fill the void left by the injury to Virgil van Dijk after he damaged his knee ligaments in a clash with Jordan Pickford last weekend.
With Virgil van Dijk out for the 2020-21 season due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury, Liverpool are down to just two fit senior centre halves for the remainder of the season and will be hoping that Joël Matip and Joe Gomez can stay fit.
If they can’t, something that their injury histories have suggested could be a problem, the club will ask midfielder Fabinho to fill in at centre half, but even with his presence things are certainly looking light at the back for Jürgen Klopp’s Reds.
It is no surprise to see transfer rumours linking the club with defenders. First was the revival of the summer’s Ozan Kabak rumours, then there are suggestions from some pundits that they go for Conor Coady, now Dayot Upamecano is on the menu.
Sources in Germany claim Leipzig are expecting Liverpool to make a move to sign their centre-back in January, with an offer in excess of £40m hard for them to turn down.
Upamecano recently put pen to paper on a new contract with RB Leipzig, committing himself to the club until 2023.
The Reds are set to be without Van Dijk for the rest of this season but the Liverpool Echo caution that their sources suggest the club aren’t looking at bringing in anybody in January as things currently stand given Fabinho has impressed at centre half since Van Dijk suffered his injury against Everton.
