Liverpool are reportedly working on a move for Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare.

The French-born defensive midfielder of Senegalese decent has attracted strong interest from the English Premier League leaders according to Sport with the Reds said to be already negotiating a bid for the 21-year-old.

Soumare has in the past been linked with a move to Newcastle United, but reportedly rejected the Magpies approaches.

He left Paris Saint-Germain’s youth academy for Lille in 2017 and has progressed to becoming a first team regular for the club.

Soumare has played 30 times for Lille this season and 69 times in total.

He has also been a regular for France at youth level, representing the country of his birth in six different age categories over the last six years.

Lille currently occupy fourth place on the French Ligue 1 standings.
