are interested in signing star Cheick Doucoure as continues rebuilding his midfield, according to reports.
Following a disappointing 2022/23 campaign, there have been some big changes at Anfield as Klopp looks to get back to winning ways.
Liverpool’s midfield has been completely overhauled, with Naby Keita, and James Milner leaving on a free, and and Dominik Szoboszlai arriving for a combined £97million.
And there could yet be more changes in the middle of the pitch, with and he could be joined by Reds captain Jordan Henderson.
In the event that one or both players depart, Liverpool are expected to delve back into the transfer market to sign a defensive-minded midfielder, with plenty of names on Klopp’s shortlist.
This includes Southampton’s Romeo Lavia, , Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch, Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat and Aston Villa’s Boubacar Kamara.
But now report that another name has joined the list: Doucoure.
The Mali international only signed for Palace last summer from Lens in a deal worth up to £26m and enjoyed a brilliant maiden campaign at Selhurst Park, winning the club’s Player of the Season award.
The 23-year-old recored an impressive 56 interceptions across 34 Premier League appearances – a tally bettered only by Arsenal’s new record signing Declan Rice.
It is not known whether the Eagles would be willing to entertain any offers for their star player as while they have signed a new defensive midfielder in the form of Jefferson Lerma, the former Bournemouth man is not viewed as a Doucoure replacement.
And even if they were willing to sell, Roy Hodgson’s side would likely demand a significant fee given how important Doucoure is to the side and the fact that his contract runs until 2027.
