Liverpool are one of the clubs chasing RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, according to Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

It's been claimed Upamecano has been on the radar for Liverpool’s scouting department for some time, with the 22-year-old Frenchman considered one of the most promising young defenders in Europe.

He is contracted with Leipzig until 2023, but reportedly has a €42million (£37m) release clause in his deal, which has alerted other clubs to his potential.
