RB Leipzig and Chelsea have joined us in pursuing Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Amadou Hairdara, according to France Football.
Reports from Austria have indicated we have been tracking the 20-year-old for a number of months, but it seems other clubs are now preparing offers for the player.
Leipzig need a replacement for the Liverpool bound Naby Keita, and their links to Salzburg mean they have a good chance of signing the midfielder.
France Football say we have already made contact about signing Haidara, but Chelsea have also made an enquiry, although their interest is said to be not as strong as ours.
The Malian international can play in central midfield or on the right flank. The majority of his ten assists last season came from wide positions.
His most notable performance came in the second leg of the Europa League semi-final against Marseille, where he scored the opening goal before being sent off in extra time.
