A report claims that Liverpool have held discussions with Boubakary Soumare's camp as they battle to win the race for the Lille midfielder.

Liverpool are reportedly in talks with Boubakary Soumare's representatives regarding a summer move for the Lille midfielder.

The 21-year-old came close to joining Newcastle United in January, only for the French club to knock back the £35m offer.

According to journalist Duncan Castles, Newcastle are still interested in signing Soumare, but they face strong competition from Premier League champions-elect Liverpool.

The Reds are said to have been in touch with the France Under-21s international's agent and are hopeful of striking a deal with Lille.

Soumare had been a regular for Les Dogues since joining from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, but he has recently fallen out of favour and could be available for a cut-price fee.

Castles suggests that the £35m offered by Newcastle at the turn of the year would now be enough to land the midfielder.
