Liverpool is now willing to pay £42m to secure their first signing of the summer. – Report…



Liverpool is reportedly prepared to spend £42m to secure their first signing of the summer transfer window.


According to a journalist, Liverpool is now prepared to pay £42m in order to secure their first summer signing.


The club has shown interest in Lille centre-back Leny Yoro, with manager Arne Slot keen on adding a young talent to their defensive line at Anfield.


Despite having four quality centre-backs, Liverpool sees room for another addition following Joel Matip’s departure.


Yoro is considered a “generational talent” and would be a valuable addition to the squad, although competition from Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, and Real Madrid is expected.


According to journalist Ben Jacobs, Manchester United have successfully had a bid of around £42 million (€50m) accepted by the French club.


In his article, Jacobs mentions that Liverpool is also prepared to offer a similar amount for the player, but they require confirmation that he is open to joining their team.


Yoro has just one year remaining on his current contract with Lille and has expressed his desire to transfer to Real Madrid.


He is willing to wait until 2025 to join Madrid on a free transfer, highlighting his strong desire to play for Los Blancos.


Liverpool’s position on Yoro is crystal clear.


The club has expressed their interest in signing him and is willing to pay a substantial fee, but they are not interested in pursuing the player if he does not have any intention of moving to the Premier League.


Yoro is set on joining Real Madrid, and no other club will do. This makes it challenging for any other team to negotiate a deal for the player, regardless of his talent.


Even if Lille is open to offers from Liverpool or Man Utd, unless the player has a change of heart, there is no possibility of acquiring him in the upcoming summer transfer window.


Furthermore, one might question the wisdom of spending a large sum of money on a player who will become a free agent the following summer.
