Liverpool spy January chance for RB Leipzig defender Upamecano

Liverpool are interested in RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano.

The Sunday World says Liverpool have identified Upamecano as their main transfer target as they look to fill the void left by the injury to Virgil van Dijk.

Sources in Germany claim Leipzig are expecting Liverpool to make a move to sign their centre-back in January, with an offer in excess of £40m hard for them to turn down.

Upamecano recently put pen to paper on a new contract with RB Leipzig, committing himself to the club until 2023.

The Reds are set to be without Van Dijk for the rest of this season after he damaged knee ligaments in a clash with Jordan Pickford last weekend.
