Agent confirms Liverpool and Manchester City want to sign €200,000 defender


Lecce Sporting director Stefano Trinchera has confirmed that Patrick Dorgu, is attracting a lot of attention from several major European clubs.

However, he insisted that the left-back is committed to remain with the Italian club at least up until the conclusion of the 2023/24 season.

Speaking to Bold.dk, Trinchera said: "Patrick Dorgu creates publicity, and over time the price of him will only increase.

"In January, he will stay with us. It is too early to make decisions about the future, but Dorgu is on the list of many of the big European clubs.

"I am not going to talk about the price of a kid who is growing day by day."

Kingsley Ogbodo, Dorgu’s agent, recently stated Liverpool want to sign Dorgu but that they're not the only interested team.

Also speaking to Bold.dk, Ogbodo said: "That's not what we're looking for right now.

"We focus on his career, his development and playing time. Liverpool are obviously not the only club following him either. There are many clubs here in England who are keeping an eye on him.

"Manchester City kept an eye on him when he played against England for the Under-19s at Hobro in Denmark. The Lecce scout also told me that Barcelona are also monitoring Patrick, because he is a huge talent.

"But we would like him to stay a little longer in Lecce, two more seasons to mature and gain experience. He will move to a bigger club only when we deem him ready."

The 19-year-old's performance and talent have drawn a lot of attention since his promotion to Lecce's first team. This season, Dorgu has made 14 appearances with an average match rating of 6.52, via Whoscored.

He may soon find himself amidst a tug of war between Nigeria and Denmark for his services, as both nations are considering extending a senior squad invitation to him.

Despite international interest, Dorgu is remaining with his current club for the time being but Liverpool could soon accelerate their interest but will have to pay a lot more than the miserly €200,000 Lecce paid to sign him from Danish outfit FC Nordsjaelland in the summer.
