Liverpool interested in signing €25m-rated French forward

Leeds United and West Ham United are both ready to battle it out for Stade Rennais winger Martin Terrier. The French winger is also a target for Liverpool, with the Ligue 1 club demanding €40m to part ways with the attacker. The 25-year-old winger came through the ranks at Lille before moving to Lyon in 2018.

The Frenchman spent two campaigns at Lyon before joining Stade Rennais in 2020. Martin has since found a second wind and has 45 goal contributions in only 83 matches for the French club. This has caught the attention of teams from around the channel, including Leeds, West Ham and Liverpool, as the 2022 summer transfer window gathers further steam.

Stade Rennais are not averse to selling their star man and could be persuaded to do so for a fee of €40m. Terrier’s displays have also caught the attention of the Reds. Liverpool went big for Darwin Nunez in the summer, and it is difficult to see them splash the cash for another forward.

The very fact that FSG’s recruitment team have Terrier on their radar speaks highly of his potential. After all, the Reds have proven themselves to be real savants when it comes to recruitment.

Whether it be Leeds or West Ham, either club will be making a gamble in hitching their fortunes to Marin, especially for a price of €40m. But then it is a high risk, high reward situation that could pay huge dividends should it come off.
