Late midfielder links & Gomez Premier League interest – Latest LFC News

Tuesday was littered with links to midfielders, but Liverpool need to get a move on if they are to get any business done before the deadline.


Liverpool ‘still want’ Doucoure

Cheick Doucoure still appears to be on the Reds’ radar, but time is running out for any more additions to be made.

The Independent‘s Miguel Delaney has indicated that there is “still interest” in Doucoure from a Liverpool perspective, but the potential cost of a deal remains a sticking point.

The Crystal Palace midfielder was touted as a potential Fabinho replacement last month, with more recent reports suggesting that the club are “stepping up” their attempts to bring in the 23-year-old.

He has previously been valued at around £70 million, although Delaney himself has more recently claimed that the Mali international could be available for less than £60 million.
