PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahim Sangare is the latest name to be linked with a move to Liverpool
Liverpool are interested in PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahim Sangare, according to Kiki Musampa.
The 46-year-old, brother of Sangare’s agent, has claimed that the Reds are among three elite European clubs chasing the French-Ivorian. Nottingham Forest were previously interested in the 25-year-old but failed to meet the financial demands of the Eredivisie side.
Liverpool’s pursuit of reinforcements in the middle has been no secret. The Reds have had three bids for Romeo Lavia rejected from Southampton before their offer of around £110m was accepted by Brighton & Hove Albion for Moises Caicedo.
Chelsea had been long-standing suitors for Caicedo before Jurgen Klopp’s side swooped in. However, the Londoners have since reportedly swooped in for both midfield targets as the battle for acquisitions between the two sides continues.
It has been claimed that Sangare has a €37.5m (£32m) release clause in his contract and was subject to an approach from Premier League side Nottingham Forest.
Steve Cooper’s side failed to meet the 25-year-old’s valuation but it has been suggested that Sangare still remains a top target for the City Ground club.
This weekend, Musampa has named Liverpool among European juggernauts Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain in the running to sign Sangare. The former footballer is the brother of Sangare’s agent and was featuring on ESPN when he made the admission.
He said: “There are big clubs that are interested, such as Bayern Munich. Ibrahim is also on the list at Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool, but he is not yet a priority there. Nottingham Forest had already made an offer, but that was not enough.”
