Soumare wants to join either Manchester United or Liverpool

Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare would prefer to sign for one of Manchester United or Liverpool during next summer's transfer window.

The 20-year-old has built his reputation during his time in the French Ligue 1 and he was linked with the likes of Chelsea and United last month.

Frank Lampard's side were previously deemed to be leading the race for his services but Footmercato has now claimed that the midfielder would prefer to join one of their Premier League rivals instead.

The same outlet suggests that the central midfielder has set his sights on signing for either United or Liverpool with Lille prepared to accept a package of around £40m for his sale in the summer.

United are still uncertain over the future of Paul Pogba, who has been heavily linked with a return to Juventus and they are likely to spend on a new midfielder at the end of the campaign.

In comparison, Jurgen Klopp's side don't have a similar concern for the moment but they may be tempted to bolster the squad in the summer after making no marquee signings for the ongoing campaign.
