RB Leipzig considers Quentin Merlin one of the top targets in the next winter transfer window. In addition to the Bundesliga representative, Napoli also wants the services of the 2002-born defender. Most likely, he will move to a big club in the near future.
Paris Saint-Germain, Lyon and Nice are also keeping an eye on the French U21 international. The problem with this deal lies in the fact that Quentin Merlin wants to be given the opportunity to play more to ensure a spot in the 2024 Olympics taking place right at home next summer.
At the last summer market, RB Leipzig once put 10 million euros on the negotiating table but Nantes decided to refuse. After Quentin Merlin’s impressive start since the beginning of the season, this number promises to be much higher, possibly even doubling the original price.
Quentin Merlin is Ligue 1’s top young talent, emerging for Nantes last season. He was called up to France U21 by coach Thierry Henry. The player born in 2002 is a left back but he can completely take on the role of midfielder if really necessary.
