Leeds United have recently been linked with a move for Liverpool defender Yasser Larouci, but a report this week has highlighted why the Whites have struggled to get a deal done for the full-back.
It was reported by Goal last month that Leeds, along with Brentford, are keen on the Algerian teenager.
Larouci has seen his path toward first-team football at Anfield further blocked by the recent arrival of Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiakos and the former Le Havre man could be a shrewd addition for Leeds this summer.
However, according to Foot Afrique, a difference in valuation is holding up any deal. They report that Liverpool are looking for £2 million for the teenage talent. Leeds believe that is an overvaluation for a player who has never featured in a league game for the Reds.
The former winger, who has been converted into a left-back, would fit perfectly into Leeds’ system and with current young left-back talent Leif Davis having more injury problems last season would be a decent piece of business for Victor Orta and the Whites.
However, it seems Larocui will not be heading to West Yorkshire until a compromise can be met on price.
