Paper Talk: Liverpool ready £110m double raid for quality Lille duo; Man Utd alerted by new lowly Aubameyang price

Liverpool want two Lille stars in a double deal that would cost £110m, while Arsenal’s new asking price for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to entice Man Utd to make their move, according to Wednesday’s latest paper gossip.



Manchester United face a fight with Liverpool for the signing of Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare, according to reports.

The all-action midfielder has enjoyed an impressive season with the Ligue 1 side, who know they face a battle to retain the midfielder’s services.

They accepted a big-money offer from Newcastle for Soumare in January, only for the midfielder to reject the deal, but are expected to return for the player when the transfer window reopens.

They will also be joined by Manchester United, who see Soumare as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba, though United have also been tipped to sign Thomas Partey after he outlined a wish to move to Old Trafford.

But according to The Sun, via Le10 Sport, any bid by Newcastle and Man Utd will be matched by Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp also keen to add the midfielder to his ranks.



Lille are said to be asking around £50million for the 21-year-old with Reds scouts said to be impressed by the midfielder.

And Soumare isn’t the only Lille player on Liverpool’s radar with the Reds also said to have opened talks over a deal for Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen, who would cost around £60m.

If the reports are accurate, Liverpool would be looking to spend £110m to add the Lille duo to their star-studded squad ahead of next season.
