‘Just Normal Scouting’ – Fabrizio Romano Reveals Liverpool’s Stance on PSG, Real Madrid Target

Liverpool are one of the top European clubs vying to sign LOSC Lille defender Leny Yoro. Nonetheless, the Reds face a challenge from Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid to sign the Frenchman this summer.

Despite his young age, Yoro featured in 44 matches for Les Dogues this 2023-24 season, demonstrating his readiness to step into the starting center-back position. 

However, with just a year remaining on his contract, there’s speculation he might be sold this summer if he doesn’t agree to an extension. As rumors begin to swirl about the transfer window opening in a few weeks, transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano provided the latest. 

“One of the top young center-backs in Europe right now and one to watch on the market is Leny Yoro of Lille,” Romano wrote in his latest column for CaughtOffside. “I’ve reported on his future before, with a lot of interest, a lot of clubs scouting him, and now we’re seeing more reports and links about strong interest from Liverpool.

“As I’ve mentioned previously, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are absolutely in the race for Yoro. It’s also the case that Liverpool have been scouting him, but at the moment the situation is really based on what kind of price Lille will ask for – all clubs are basically waiting for that.

“Liverpool could strengthen at centre-back this summer, as I’ve reported before, but let’s see if this scouting and monitoring of Yoro turns into anything more concrete. For now, it’s just normal scouting of a top talent, and my understanding is that PSG and Real Madrid are very much in the race for his signature.”

La Voix du Nord recently reported that PSG are pulling out all the stops to secure the recruitment of Leny Yoro. The defender is at the top of the Parisians’ wishlist, and they seem prepared to shell out €60 million to buy out the final year of his contract.
