Liverpool step up interest in Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare

Liverpool are stepping up their interest in Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare.

Sport says Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are all keen on the 21-year-old midfielder.

Liverpool have also entered the mix - with Jurgen Klopp a big fan of the player.

The Reds held tentative talks over the France under-21 international last summer - but Soumare wanted to see out the season in France.

But, depending on the state of the club's finances following the coronavirus pandemic, Liverpool could return for the box-to-box midfielder this summer.

Newcastle also made an audacious €60m move for Soumare in January.
