Rennes star is wanted in England
The Reds are reportedly leading a host of top Premier League sides to sign Paul-Georges Ntep.
Ntep has proven to be one of Ligue 1‘s top performers this season after joining Rennes from Auxerre last summer.
Premier League Interest
The 22 year-old has also been heavily linked with a move for Arsenal, as well as Chelsea and Manchester City.
Reports in December claimed that Stoke had surprisingly beat off the four English giants to the signing.
But L’Equipe has confirmed that the youngster is most likely joining Liverpool if indeed he does choose to move to the Premier League.
It is believed that Ntep has visited Liverpool’s training ground, Melwood, twice within the last fortnight and has been highly impressed with what he has seen.
After losing out on signing Memphis Depay, Ntep would provide a suitable alternative as Brendan Rodgers looks to strengthen his squad for next season.
