Manchester City are said to be interested in signing Aouar when the summer window eventually opens, but according to Corriere dello Sport, the runaway Premier League leaders, Liverpool are also in the race.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are among the market frontrunners to lift the Champions League trophy again this year, with a number of amazing offers that have been developed by consistently putting the Reds in a high position on the outright list.

The report goes on to claim that the Frenchman, who has also been linked with Juventus, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, is valued somewhere in the region of €50million.
