Liverpool are reportedly planning a summer move for Lyon defender Jordy Gaspar.
The 19-year-old has made three first-team appearances for OL, but has yet to sign a professional deal, and could be free to leave as early as May.
AC Milan are also interested in the French youth international according to TeleFoot.
Both clubs have been watching the right-back since January and they are now ready to pounce before others wade in.
Indeed, both Bayer Leverkusen and Fiorentina are also interested in Gaspar – but they are yet to make concrete approaches.
Liverpool are in need of defensive reinforcements in the wide defensive areas, with Nathaniel Clyne the only recognised wide defender that is in the good books of Jurgen Klopp.
The German is also looking for depth at right-back while also looking for a more natural defender in the left-back position, which has been donned by James Milner, who is predominantly a midfielder.
