Liverpool ‘have already started courting’ player – Club willing to give discount

Earlier this week, the German press reported Liverpool’s interest in Schalke 04’s Assan Ouédraogo.

Jurgen Klopp, according to Sky Deutschland, has been watching the midfielder, who has recently impressed in Bundesliga 2.

Today is the day for the Italian press to talk about the race for Ouédraogo. And, when Calcio Mercato covers the 17-year-old, Liverpool gets a new mention.

Their narrative focuses mostly on AC Milan’s interest, implying that the Rossoneri will face stiff competition for the signing.

Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig, and Liverpool are among the clubs rumored to have ‘begun courting’ the midfielder, who is set to receive ‘important news’ on his future in the coming days.

A noteworthy aspect in this narrative is that Schalke 04 is alleged to be willing to sell the player for less than his release clause.

So, while it appeared that €20 million would be required to sign Ouédraogo, Calcio Mercato now claims that the German club ‘may open’ to a €7-8 million discount, which is typical of the Italian media.
