The impressive youngster has also drawn interest from Manchester United, AC Milan, and Barcelona. According to the report (h/t Liverpool Echo), German giants Borussia Dortmund look to have gained the upper hand in securing the player and are now favourites.

One for the future?

Liverpool are currently well-stocked in the midfield and it is hard to imagine Camavinga breaking into the first XI.

James Milner is in the twilight years of his career whereas Henderson and Wijaldum will turn 30 this year. To that end, Camavinga could be potentially groomed to take their spot in the future.

Considered one of the best young players in the world, the 17-year-old has been likened to former Argentine star Fernando Redondo in his prime.

Camavinga is equally adept at playing in central midfield and defensive midfield. Rennes are understood to be holding out for €100million for the youngster.

At the age of just 17, Camavinga has already made 31 appearances for Rennes and also made his debut for the French Under-21 side.

Liverpool have already been linked with the likes of Kai Havertz and also have Marko Grujic returning from his loan spell in the summer. Whether the Reds bid for Camavinga or not remains to be seen.
