RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano will leave the club in the summer according to reports from Germany.
Bild reports that the French defender will be available for only £40m thanks to a clever clause that was installed in his contract with the player having been one of the most consistent players in the Bundesliga over the last three-and-a-half seasons since joining Leipzig from Red Bull Salzburg.
During his stay at the club, the 22-year-old has helped his side to 2nd, 3rd and sixth place finishes during and was part of their team that reached the Champions League semi-finals lasts season.
The French defender had been linked with Manchester United in the summer and the English giants are believed to be the front runner for his signatures but Liverpool has entered the race too following their injury crisis.
Both Van Dijk and Gomez are long term absentees and Liverpool are doing all they can to fill the void; the team linked with a move for Bayern Munich's David Alaba too.

Will leave RB Leipzig next summer.
Bayern interested, but have to wait on Alaba.
Liverpool, Man UTD and Man City following him closely
