Leverkusen slap €60m price tag on in-demand defender Odilon Kossounou

Odilon Kossounou, the 23-year-old Ivorian defender, is making waves in the transfer market with a hefty €60 million price tag set by his club, Bayer Leverkusen. This news has put European giants Real Madrid, Liverpool, and Manchester United on high alert, all rumored to be interested in securing his services, according to Ekrem KONUR .

Kossounou’s impressive performances in the Bundesliga have turned heads. His towering presence (6’3″), combined with his pace, tackling prowess, and leadership qualities, make him a sought-after commodity. Despite only being 23, he’s already a key figure for Leverkusen, playing a pivotal role in their recent defensive solidity.

Real Madrid, looking to bolster their backline, could see Kossounou as a long-term replacement for veterans like Sergio Ramos. Liverpool, seeking defensive reinforcements after injuries and inconsistent displays, might be tempted by his versatility and aerial dominance. Manchester United, on the other hand, could view him as a potential solution to their ongoing defensive woes.

However, with a hefty price tag like €60 million, any potential deal for Kossounou is likely to be complex and require serious financial commitment. Only time will tell if these European giants are willing to open their wallets wide enough to land this highly-rated young defender.
