The 21 year old Red Bull Salzburg man is already being tracked by a number of Europe’s ‘Elite’ and looks likely to be tempted away from the Red Bull Arena though Brendan Rodgers hopes that he wins the race to land the strong centre-back.
Arsenal, Man United and Juventus are all keen on the youngster and Rodgers hopes to bring in the defender in January, this despite the fact that the Anfield boss signed Kolo Toure, Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Ilori over the summer.
Youngster Ilori is set to be sent out on loan, while Napoli continue to scout Slovakian battler Martin Skrtel.
Despite Liverpool’s impressive start to the season it is worth noting that the Merseyside club have conceded more goals than anyone else in the top five with an excellent display from keeper Simon Mignolet still failing to prevent Everton from scoring three times on Saturday during an exciting derby encounter.
