Liverpool tracking Rennes youngster Eduardo Camavinga
French teenager Eduardo Camavinga is enjoying an impressive season for Rennes in the Ligue 1.

Camavinga has been at the club since the age of 11 and is the youngest player to win the French Ligue 1 Player of the Month award. (h/t Metro)
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.
