Report — Liverpool is set to make a £50.8m payment to sign young talented player, following price drop from £84.7m…



Liverpool ready to splash out £50.8m on signing after original price of £84.7m lowered.


Liverpool is prepared to pay £50.8m for the signing of French talent Leny Yoro, following a reduction in price from £84.7m, according to recent reports.


Sport has indicated that the Reds are actively pursuing the central defender this summer.


Initially, Lille had requested a fee of £84.7m, equivalent to 100 million euros. This amount was later lowered to 80 million euros, and now stands at £50.8m, or 60 million euros.


According to reports from Catalan media, the initial asking price for Yoro by Lille was £84.7m, which is equivalent to 100 million euros.


This was later reduced to 80 million euros, and now the fee has been further lowered to £50.8m, or 60 million euros.


Sport has reported that both Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to pay the current price of £50.8m set by Lille for Yoro.


However, despite the interest from these clubs, the player has expressed his desire to only move to Real Madrid, and has not given his approval for a transfer to either the Premier League or Ligue 1.


Sources in Spain have also stated that Real Madrid are close to selling Rafa Marin to Napoli for 12 million euros, and plan to use the funds from this sale to secure the transfer of Yoro.


Madrid is firm on their offer of not exceeding 40 million euros for the 18-year-old player, who had an impressive record of 15 clean sheets in the league last season.


They are urging Lille to reconsider and lower their asking price.


If an agreement cannot be reached this summer, the European Champions are prepared to wait until the following season to acquire Leny Yoro on a free transfer.


Currently, Lille may have no choice but to sell Yoro at a reduced price, as he has no interest in joining Liverpool or PSG, rather than risk losing him on a free transfer in 2025.
