Liverpool are in talks with Lyon for Houssem Aouar.
Le 10 Sport says Liverpool are in pole position to sign Aouar.
The report says, unlike Tottenham and United, Liverpool do not need to sell to raise funds to sign Aouar.
They lost Georginio Wijnaldum at the end of his contract this summer and are on the lookout for a replacement.
However, Lyon are not making it easy for any side to sign Aouar. The Ligue 1 outfit have now raised their asking price.
Lyon initially would have accepted a fee of between £17.2million (€20m) and £21.5m (€25m). However, the club's hierarchy will now demand between £25.9m (€30m) and £30.2m (€35m).
The reason for that is because new Lyon manager Peter Bosz is keen to keep Aouar at the club.
