As per an exclusive story recently covered by Le10Sport, the teenage central defender is a wanted player in the market, especially in the Premier League.
The French news source have mentioned that Man Utd have made contact with Lille to secure the signing of Yoro.
Manchester City have held talks as well and even PL leaders, Liverpool, are ready to sign him to reinforce their backline.
Le10Sport claim Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain are also interested but they have not advanced as much as Man Utd and the Anfield club.
Lille are listening to all the interested parties but their priority is to hold on to Yoro, which is why they are asking for an enormous fee of £78million for their prized asset.
In the current campaign, so far, the 18-year-old has made 16 appearances in the Ligue and helped the team keep 9 clean sheets. Moreover, he has also found the net on two occasions.
