Reds Eye £5m Yoro Heist: Can Liverpool Pip United to West Ham Star’s Signature?

Here’s a rewritten version of the article in a more engaging and conversational tone, while keeping the facts and stats accurate:

Liverpool ‘Confident’ of Leapfrogging Man Utd in Yoro Race

Liverpool are reportedly confident of beating Manchester United to the signing of Lille centre-back Leny Yoro, according to the reliable Ben Jacobs. The 18-year-old Frenchman has been subject to a bid from the Red Devils, but a litany of clubs are interested in his signature.

Yoro has been in impressive form for Lille, and his pace and athleticism would be a valuable addition to any top-six team. However, Liverpool are hopeful that their offer will be enough to tempt Yoro to Anfield, despite the allure of Old Trafford.

Defender Still Set on Real Madrid Move

Manchester United have agreed a deal worth €50 million (£42 million) for Yoro, with the potential to rise to €60 million (£51 million). Despite this, Yoro remains enticed by the prospect of joining Real Madrid’s star-studded set-up.

Liverpool Face Competition in Anthony Gordon Race

Meanwhile, Liverpool are also eyeing left-wing reinforcements with Luis Diaz’s future on Merseyside hanging in the balance. Newcastle United and England ace Anthony Gordon, formerly of Everton, is of interest to the Reds, but Manchester City will provide stern competition for his services.

Gordon, 23, played a starring role for Eddie Howe and Co last season, notching 12 goals and 11 assists in 48 appearances across all competitions. Currently on international duty with England at Euro 2024, a decision over his future is expected to be made post-tournament.
