The Daily Mail says Crystal Palace want to hijack Hull's move for Livermore.
Livermore spent last season on loan at the KC Stadium from Tottenham and it's well known that Steve Bruce wants the midfielder on a permanent deal.
The North London lad is also open to the idea of extending his stay with the Tigers.
However, City are said to be having difficulty in agreeing terms and a price with Spurs, and the Eagles are hopeful of swooping in with a move of their own.
