Liverpool report: Negotiations begin over ‘the next William Saliba’, with Reds needing to act fast to beat PSG to move.



In comparison to William Saliba, Liverpool will need to act quickly if they wish to acquire an adolescent wonderkid; negotiations have already begun regarding

his next move. According to FootMercato, Leny Yoro is imminently in talks with Paris Sant-Germain, as the reigning French champions seek to hoard talent. The Reds, like the majority of Premier League clubs, anticipate a tranquil transfer window but are not strangers to making opportunistic January purchases. An opportunity presented itself for Jurgen Klopp to sign Cody Gakpo to Anfield last season, when the Dutchman appeared to be a significant target for Manchester United.


Luis Diaz was strongly linked with Tottenham Hotspur the previous season, but Liverpool secured an agreement before them. Once more, if Klopp wishes to bring one of his primary targets to Merseyside before another European behemoth does, he may need to act swiftly. It is believed that Lille adolescent Yoro is the next French elite center-back in line to break through in the coming months. FFT ranked him among the 50 most promising adolescents to monitor this season, and Real Madrid and Manchester United have been among those to which he has been linked. Even the French publication Le10Sport reported that Liverpool were “making progress in negotiations” with the teenager, whom they considered Virgil van Dijk’s long-term successor.Yoro is now represented by superagent Jorge Mendes, according to FootMercato, which could potentially increase the price even more in the event of a bidding war.


Yoro is estimated to be worth €25 million by Transfermarkt. ‘The next William Saliba’ negotiations have begun in Liverpool, and the Reds must act quickly to surpass PSG in order to acquire him.
