Real Madrid and Liverpool looking at RB Leipzig’s Upamecano

Real Madrid and Liverpool are both interested in signing Red Bull Leipzig centre back Dayot Upamecano.

The French wonderkid has been linked with Liverpool recently but it looks like the English side will face competition from Real Madrid.

Don Balon are reporting that Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is a big fan of the centre back and has followed Upamecano’s career for the last three years.

It is believed that Leipzig do not want to let their young defender go and are set to offer him a new contract.

Zidane has discuss potential January transfer targets with president Florentino Perez and Upamecano’s name was high on that list.

However, French international and Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte remains their number one target.
