Liverpool are reportedly set to bolster their defense by targeting Ivorian sensation Ousmane Diomande this summer.

The Reds are looking to add depth alongside stalwarts Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate.

The 20-year-old, who has risen to prominence in Lisbon after a standout stint with Midtjylland, is now considered among the top young talents in his position.

Newcastle United, Chelsea and Arsenal have shown interest in Diomande in recent months.

Liverpool are poised to enter the fray, despite a hefty €80m release clause, a proposed €70m (£59.6m) offer might persuade his current club to part ways, according to A Bola.

Diomande’s impressive performances have made him a prime target as Liverpool seeks to reinforce its defensive line ahead of the next season.
