Rodgers ready to hand sought after Frenchman move to Liverpool

Liverpool have joined the battle to sign Lyon defender Samuel Umtiti, according to the Daily Star website.

It is reported that Manchester City, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Inter Milan are already tracking the 21-year-old, who can play at centre-back or left-back.

Now reports have claimed the France Under-21 international has caught the attentions of Brendan Rodgers as there is possible talk of Martin Skrtel’s departure from the club.

Umtiti is valued at around £11 million. © 2017 Frontier Theme
