Lille President confirms Liverpool target "can leave this summer"

Olivier Letang, the president of Lille, has fuelled the flames even more by stating that defender Leny Yoro is free to depart this summer. Numerous European powerhouses, most notably Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Liverpool, have made the emerging star their summer target.

Following a stellar Ligue 1 season, it's been reported he is thought to have caught the eye of Arne Slot, the new manager, who is still said to be looking for a centre defender this summer.

There seems to be a void to fill now Joel Matip has left on a free transfer, and several sources are saying that this is the Reds main goal for the summer.

Matthjis de Ligt of Bayern Munich has recently been linked to the Reds, but even though Yoro is only 18 years old, he may be a superior acquisition.

With 44 appearances in games across all competitions, the budding star has already transitioned smoothly and confidently. Consequently, he made his debuts with the U21 and U23 teams of his home France.

It has been verified by respected journalist Fabrizio Romano, that Letang has stated that the French side is willing to sell their superstar.

The youngster will miss the bulk of August if the Reds are successful in signing him this summer since he is expected to accompany French legend Thierry Henry to the Olympics this coming summer.

But don't expect the 18-year-old to be thrown into the deep end straight immediately; the Reds may take a similar approach and gradually incorporate him into the team, much like they did with Ibrahima Konate when he first signed.

Additionally, Liverpool's breakout star Jarell Quansah has emerged as a focal point this season, so if they were able to sign the Lille man, their future at the centre of defence would undoubtedly seem bright. That way, Liverpool would have an answer once Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez leave the team or retire.
