However, apparently AC Milan are also interested in Bade, which means that Liverpool have competition for the signature of the 20-year-old.
AC Milan have reportedly scouted Bade several times recently, which highlights that the Serie A club are very interested in the centre-back.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
It would make sense for Liverpool to sign a centre-back in January. Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are all injured.
Bade appears to be a decent young player. The 20-year-old has made 16 appearances in Ligue 1 this season.
Bade is averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.02 in Ligue 1 this campaign. The aforementioned figure highlights that Bade is performing well.
Bade has a current market value of €6 million, which does suggest that he would not cost the Reds too much in terms of a transfer fee.
Even if Liverpool did not sign Bade in January, he is still a player that we would like to see the Reds pursue in the future.
Due to Bade’s age, he could potentially be a Liverpool centre-back for 10 or so years.
