Liverpool & PSG Linked With £40m Move For Watford Star

A £40m move is on the cards...

Liverpool are reportedly in the mix for the signing of the Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure, a target for PSG also, according to RMC.

The Reds have been linked with the player for several months and, while it’s been unclear if there was any concrete interest, the Frenchman spoke last March of his openness to any potential move in the midst of those rumours.

"Liverpool is a club that needs no introduction,” he told Canal+ then.

"I was impatient to play there at Anfield, I wanted to feel the atmosphere. For me it would be a dream to play in a club like this.

"If there is an offer, we will discuss to find the best solution. Everyone wants to play in the Champions League, the big competitions."

Reports suggest that the Hornets believe the 25-year-old would command a price of £40m, with plenty of other pursuers expected to come out of the woodwork if they decide to sell.

The French champions PSG have also been linked with a move for the former Rennes man, and RMC reported, too, that the club are “in touch” with his entourage. Meanwhile, Spurs are cited by the Mirror as another team interested in securing his services as a replacement for the injury-blighted midfielder Victor Wanyama.

Doucoure has been an ever-present in Javi Gracia’s side so far in what has been an impressive campaign, playing every Premier League minute and notching four assists.

His manager would be loathed to lose him, of course, but could secure a healthy profit on the £9m they shelled out to bring him to England from France.
