Exclusive: Liverpool in talks to secure potential €60million transfer, potentially surpassing Manchester United’s interest in the player…



Liverpool to open discussions in bid to beat Man United to €60million transfer deal.


Liverpool is preparing to initiate discussions regarding a €60million transfer deal to secure the services of Bayer Leverkusen defender Odilon Kossounou, according to sources at CaughtOffside.


The Merseyside club is currently in pole position to sign the Ivory Coast international, who has also garnered interest from other top clubs such as Manchester United, Tottenham, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid, as per information obtained by CaughtOffside.


Kossounou’s impressive performances in the Bundesliga have put him on the radar for a potential move this summer, with the player yet to respond to Leverkusen’s offer of a new contract.


The current contract of the 23-year-old with Leverkusen is set to expire in 2026, indicating that the club may not be in a rush to sell. However, a deal could potentially be reached if the right offer is made.


It is believed that Liverpool and other clubs interested in Kossounou may need to pay approximately €60m for his services. Liverpool, in particular, is anticipated to intensify negotiations in the coming weeks, possibly within the next month.


Liverpool is actively pursuing the talented young defender Kossounou for a potential transfer.


Securing a new young center-back has been a key focus for LFC leading up to the summer transfer window, with Kossounou emerging as a top choice after thorough scouting in recent months.


Kossounou has attracted the attention of scouts from various English clubs, but it remains uncertain whether teams like United and Spurs will intensify their interest in the same way Liverpool appears to be doing.


In a recent interview with CaughtOffside, Fabrizio Romano emphasized that United is also keen on acquiring at least one, possibly two new center-backs this summer. He mentioned Antonio Silva, Jean-Clair Todibo, Jarrad Branthwaite, and Gleison Bremer as the club’s primary targets.


However, considering Liverpool’s qualification for the Champions League next season, they undoubtedly present a more enticing prospect than United at the moment.
