Indeed, Bernard Collignon admits a raft of Premier League heavyweights have been tracking the 23 year-old.
He told Fussball Transfers: "In January 2018, (Jurgen) Klopp called Mainz and wanted to commit him as a center-back, who also helps out in midfield. But Mainz did not want to let him go in the middle of the relegation battle. In the summer, Liverpool signed Fabinho.
"In my opinion he is a player worth €60m. It's time for him to play as a centre-back. There he would be a top player in all four major leagues and would make a great career. At almost 24 years you have to make a decision."
