£42m Yoro bid ‘rejected’ and new kits leaked – Latest Liverpool FC News

Monday’s Liverpool news and transfer rumours brought claims of a rejected bid for centre-back target Leny Yoro, along with a closer look at next season’s kits.

 

Yoro bid ‘rejected’

Liverpool are widely credited with an interest in Lille defender Yoro, who at 18 has already played 60 times for the French club and is considered one of the biggest talents of his generation.

But there is a sense that the Reds are not favourites to sign the youngster, with any move contingent on a breakdown in Real Madrid’s pursuit.

To that end, it is rumoured that Liverpool have already seen a bid worth around £42 million rejected, with Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo claiming that Yoro has “already chosen his destiny” – that being Real.

Lille’s price tag is claimed to be €60 million (£50.7m), though with Real “not willing to pay” that fee there is a chance the door could open for the Reds later down the line.
