Liverpool and Man Utd are allegedly in a position to secure services of Schalke 04 forward Rabbi Matondo for €60m (£53.66m).
While both teams have been rumoured with other attack-minded players, the Premier League heavyweights have also been credited with strong interest Matondo.
The 19-year-old has endured a mixed opening 16 months at the VELTINS-Arena, founding back of the net just once from nine starts and 11 substitute appearences in the Germany top-tier.
However, the MEN reports that the Red Devils or the Merseyside Reds have the option of meeting the Wales attacker’s release clause.
Given the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, a compromise would likely have to be reached if a deal was to take place during the next transfer window.
The ex-Manchester City starlet still has over three years left on his current deal.
Liverpool and Manchester United also eyeing a move for another Bundesliga star Timo Werner, German international attacker has been in stunning form as he has managed to found back of the net 27-times in all competitions.
However, Liverpool seems to be the frontrunners to lure the Werner at Anfield ahead of the next season.
