In search of a new midfielder despite already signing a few this summer, Liverpool haven’t thrown the net that wide, reaching as far as London with their latest search.
That’s according to Sports Zone, who claim the Reds have ‘sent a contract offer’ to Cheick Doucouré, currently contracted to Crystal Palace.
There’s no talk here about what Liverpool are doing when it comes to trying to convince the Eagles about a transfer, but you would have to think that having bid over £100m for Moises Caicedo, they are prepared to throw some money at the London side to get him.
The idea here is that Jürgen Klopp’s side ‘want to sign’ a defensive midfielder before the end of the transfer window on Friday, and are ‘varying their options’.
That’s where Doucouré comes in, with the 2022 Crystal Palace signing adapting to the Premier League rather nicely.
However, he isn’t the only player they are after in the role, suggesting that Liverpool have a lengthy shortlist of midfielders after already bringing in Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister and Wataru Endo this summer for a combined €132m.
We now need to wait and see what Crystal Palace think of all this.
