Real Madrid tells Yoro to wait amid Liverpool interest as Firmino makes change

Must read

Liverpool has been linked with a transfer for Lille defender Leny Yoro. But it must once again go toe-to-toe with Real Madrid if it is to complete the move, with the Spanish giant up to its usual antics.

Meanwhile, former Reds striker Roberto Firmino has made a change to his appearance, marking the new look with a goal. Here’s the latest Liverpool news.

Real Madrid tells Leny Yoro to wait for transfer

Liverpool is expected to strengthen in defense this summer, with Joël Matip leaving on a free transfer and Virgil van Dijk set to turn 33. New manager Arne Slot has options to call on, including the hugely promising Jarell Quansah following his breakthrough season, but business is nonetheless likely.

Yoro is a name that has been increasingly mentioned, but the Lille prospect is certainly in demand. Real Madrid and PSG are among the sides chasing the physically imposing teenager, who has been a regular in Ligue 1 this season.

And Liverpool will need to beat its recent Real Madrid hoodoo if it is to seal the deal, because the club from the Spanish capital has reportedly made its move. According to Foot Mercato, it has made a low offer of just $33m (£26m/€30m) plus bonuses, but urged the player to stay ‘calm’ and wait for a deal to be struck.

Liverpool has lost out over Jude Bellingham and Aurélien Tchouaméni in the last couple of years. While it’s hard to imagine Lille ever accepting such a low offer for Yoro, there’s no doubting the pull of Real Madrid, and it looks to be putting its strategy to work already.
