Liverpool are interested in signing Crystal Palace star Cheick Doucour and another midfielder is wanted at Anfield.
Cheick Doucour could be the man for Liverpool this summer as the Reds hope for another midfield signing.
Liverpool have finally added a defensive midfielder to their squad in recent days with the signing of Wataru Endo.
The Stuttgart captain has completed his move to Anfield and made his debut against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Endo might not be the most glamorous signing at 30 but he has been a consistent performer and a real leader for Stuttgart.
However, Liverpool may still want another option in the defensive midfield role – one with some Premier League experience.
The Reds opted for Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia only to find that both opted for Chelsea instead.
Liverpool could turn elsewhere given their links to players like Joao Palhinha and even Mario Lemina, but Cheick Doucour appears to be high on the list.
Liverpool could switch for the ‘extraordinary’ Cheick Doucour
Even after agreeing on a contract to sign Endo, The guard claimed Liverpool want Crystal Palace star Doucour as a ‘prime target’.
Doucour joined Palace in a deal worth around £21million Last summer I had impressed with Lens.
Doucoure has been rated very highly in France, with former Sunderland player Eric Roy giving a clear verdict.
Roy suggested that Doucoure was “one of the best midfielders in French football” and was simply “extraordinary” when it came to his football IQ.
Roy added that you can’t go wrong in signing a player like Doucoure as he has a “great mentality” and a real ability to regain possession.
That sounds like exactly what Liverpool want: Doucour offers an option fit for the Premier League but still has great potential at just 23.
Palace will obviously want big bucks for Doucoure so Liverpool will have to dig deep – but he could be the man for Jurgen Klopp after signing Endo.
