RB Leipzig offer Liverpool Upamecano transfer boost


RB Leipzig has insisted they will continue to sell their best players amid Liverpool links with highly-rated Dayot Upamecano

Liverpool are expected to be in the market for a central defender this winter in the face of injury crisis.

The Reds are reportedly tracking RB Leipzig defender Upamecano to help strengthen their numbers and curtail injury worries.

Bundesliga side RB Leipzig have previously seen their star names sealing transfers, with Timo Werner's £47.5 million switch to Chelsea the most high-profile example.

And now, 22-year-old Frenchman Upamecano could well be the next inline as CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has insisted on selling more star players.

"We have a squad that is very broad in terms of quality," Mintzlaff said.

"So we will sell top performers again if it makes financial sense and we can cope with it from a sporting point of view.

"Overall, we have invested a lot in our team, no question about that. But look: the current squad had a market value of less than €250 million when the individual players made their debut.

"And if we now take the current market value, we are at around €550 million. You have to take this plus of over €300 million into account when you talk about investments. We are creating value with our path."
