LIVERPOOL are reportedly set to take on Nottingham Forest in the fight for Ibrahim Sangare after missing out on Moises Caicedo.

But Caicedo turned down a move to Anfield as he had eyed a move to Chelsea from the start.

Chelsea have now received a £115m British transfer offer accepted by Brighton, a transfer fee that dwarfs the previous record £107m they paid Benfica for Enzo Fernandez in January.

That snub has left Jurgen Klopp desperate for reinforcements after losing numerous midfielders in the summer.

And now Liverpool are interested Sangare from PSV Eindhovenso ex-Manchester City star Kiki Musampa.

The 46-year-old is the French-Ivorian’s brother and claims the Reds are one of three European big guns chasing his brother’s signature.

Forest were also interested in the 25-year-old but failed to fulfill the Eredivisie team award.

The Ivory Coast international, who joined PSV from Toulouse in 2020, has a £32m release clause in his contract.

And although Steve Cooper’s Forest are still looking for a deal, they reportedly face stiff competition from Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.


Speaking to Good Morning Eredivisie, Musampa said: “There are big clubs that are interested, such as Bayern Munich.

“Ibrahim is also on the list at Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool, but he’s not a priority there yet.

“Nottingham Forest had already made an offer but that wasn’t enough.”
