Liverpool eyeing deal for Ivorian midfielder?
Liverpool could reportedly step up their interest in signing PSV midfielder Ibrahim Sangare.
The Reds were recently interested in signing Moises Caicedo from Brighton, but Chelsea have won the race for his signature.
Meanwhile, they have suffered a similar setback with Romeo Lavia. The Southampton star has also decided to join the Blues.
Hence, the Merseyside giants need to look elsewhere, and reports claim that Sangare is the latest name on their transfer shortlist.
The Ivorian is regarded as one of the best holding midfielders in the Eredivisie, and he is open to pursuing a bigger challenge.
Napoli and Inter have been credited with an interest, but the Reds will be hoping to beat the duo in the pursuit of the 25-year-old.
Liverpool are currently short in the defensive midfield department after the departures of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and James Milner.
Alexis Mac Allister and Thiago Alcantara can play in the role, but Jurgen Klopp may want a specialist for the position very soon.
