Jurgen Klopp Lining Up January Move For Highly-Rated Frenchman

Liverpool are preparing a January move for Bundesliga runner-up RB Leipzig youngster Dayot Upamecano, according to the Bild reports.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have already conceded 11 goals in the Premier League this term in 6 games and have been widely criticised for defence.

Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk was Jurgen Klopp’s top transfer target during the summer transfer window. However, the deal have been collapsed following their illegal approach.

Bild suggests that Jurgen Klopp is now considering a move for RB Leipzig starlet Upamecano.

The 18-year-old Frenchman has joined Leipzig during the January transfer window, signing a four-and-a-half year deal with German club and now being heavily linked with a switch to England.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United are believed to have expressed interest in French starlet.

The Red Devils have signed Victor Lindelof from Benfica this summer, while Arsene Wenger’s side completed the free transfer of Sead Kolasinac to strengthen their defensive end.
