Several clubs, including Liverpool and Chelsea, are interested in RB Leipzig's "scorer" Loïs Openda Transfers

Egyptian international Mohamed Salah is the subject of keen interest from clubs in the Middle East, and with his age approaching 32, the time for a generational change is approaching. Liverpool, looking for an ace candidate to replace him, is scouting its forward lineup, focusing on left-handed right wingers.

While the names of young wingers who are making a name for themselves not only in the Premier League but also in Europe rise and fall, Liverpool is also interested in the Belgian attacker, who has been scoring goals in the Bundesliga.

According to Fichajes, RB Leipzig’s 24-year-old forward Lois Openda, who has scored more than 20 goals in the domestic league and Champions League this season, is in a fierce competition with several clubs, including Chelsea.

The Belgian international, who can play on the left or right wing in addition to center forward, came through the academy at Club Brugge and played in the first team before moving to Lens in 2022, where he made the step up to RB Leipzig in a single season.

In 2022, he made his debut for the Belgian national team. He has scored two goals in 16 games and is highly decisive in front of goal. He has a long-term contract with the German club that runs through June 2028, so he is expected to require a hefty transfer fee.

Does the former Club Brugge attacker have a future at Anfield?
