On December 23rd, we carried a report from L’Equipe, who explained Manchester United ‘pleases’ Boubakary Soumaré and the Lille midfielder is open to making a switch to the Premier League.
Two days ago, the same newspaper stated Tottenham Hotspur, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newcastle United have submitted offers for the 20-year-old and the Ligue 1 side are open to do business. However, he wants to continue with his current employer until the end of the season.
A new English club is added to the list of suitors as Le10 Sport claims Liverpool have made a ‘remarkable entry in the Soumaré case’.
According to the report, the Reds are ‘considering an action’ with Lille about the Frenchman, but Le10 adds it isn’t clear if the Champions League winners are doing this for the winter market or if they’ll wait for the summer.
With Soumaré making it clear he won’t leave Lille in January; a transfer is only possible in the summer.
Soumaré is not just in the sights of the Premier League clubs, as top European sides are also chasing him.
