Leny Yoro Targetted By Liverpool

Premier League giants Liverpool are reportedly eyeing Lille’s emerging young French defender, Leny Yoro amid growing concerns over the defensive squad depth.

The squad depth of Liverpool is in doubt due to the departure of their veteran defender Joel Matip at the end of the season and also Ibrahima Konate’s prevailing injuries during this season.

The Merseysiders initially considered Lloyd Kelly and Tosin but missed out on them, leaving them in search of alternatives in the defensive department around Europe.

Potential Race On The Verge

While the rumours are swirling around Leny Yoro, the Spanish giants Real Madrid are rumoured to be Yoro’s preferred destination, but Liverpool’s interest in the young Frenchman could really complicate matters for PSG who are in the race for the young defender.

With the young French defender’s contract expiring in 2025 and no renewal in sight, Lille might be forced to sell this upcoming summer transfer window.

This potentially opens up the door for a bidding war between Liverpool, PSG and Real Madrid, all represented by super-agent Jorge Mendes.

A Huge Price To Pay

The young right-footed defender, Leny Yoro’s valuation in the transfer market is between €90m and €100m, this brings up a challenge for potential suitors, especially with only 12 months left in his contract.

The Ligue1 club Lille’s failure to qualify for the Champions League group stage adds pressure, as they risk missing out on the financial benefits that come along with the qualification.

Liverpool are not under any financial restrictions that tie their hands in the transfer window, their hunt for the Yoro reflects how much they are dedicated to finding the right player for their concerned defensive department.
