The Paris Saint-Germain midfield is receiving a significant overhaul this summer. While there are several additions the capital club has made, they might continue the revamp as they currently eye Cheick Doucoure.
According to Standard Sport, the capital club still wants to strengthen in the middle with several options before the transfer window closes, so they might be interested in the Crystal Palace midfielder.

However, PSG faces fierce competition from Liverpool to secure Doucoure’s signature. The English Premier League side has been monitoring the midfielder’s progress. As a result, the Reds are likely eager to beat PSG to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season.
The battle between PSG and Liverpool for Doucoure’s services adds an intriguing twist to the transfer saga. While the report Standard Sport doesn’t reveal the potential cost, The Athletic shed light on how much it will take for the former RC Lens player.
Crystal Palace will only entertain a significant sum due to Doucoure’s importance. The Eagles may view Southampton’s £50 million valuation of Romeo Lavia as guidance.
