Liverpool have a serious interest in the Ivory Coast international Ibrahim Sangare and have watched the player in action in the latest weeks.
The player currently plies his trade for the Eredivisie outfit PSV Eindhoven and his showings over the course of the term have put a couple of clubs on alert.
Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United and Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa are expected to look to bolster their midfield options in the summer transfer window and they are interested in Sangare as a potential recruit.
However, the club could well face stiff competition as Jurgen Klopp’s side are keen, according to Dutch outlet Voetbal International.
The Reds sent scouts to watch the player in action over the final few weeks of the campaign as they set their sights on a swoop.
With Jordan Henderson ageing and having not replaced Georginio Wijnaldum, the Premier League giants are expected to land another player in the middle of the park in the summer.
They’re giving serious consideration to the 24-year-old former Toulouse man, a defensively minded midfielder.
He is available for a sum of €37.5 million and Rood-witten are powerless to resist Ibrahim’s departure if the sum if met, in spite of wanting to retain his services in the coming summer.
