Liverpool will be hoping to return to winning ways when they face manager-less Chelsea on Tuesday. 

The Reds travel to Stamford Bridge following their 4-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester City on Saturday, while Chelsea are preparing for their first match since Graham Potter was dismissed on Sunday.

Bruno Saltor will take charge of The Blues for the match, although the Spaniard has admitted that he has never selected a starting 11 for a senior match.

In the meantime, Liverpool are being linked with a move for a highly-rated Eredivisie midfielder.

As per Football Insider, The Reds are interested in PSV Eindhoven’s Ibrahim Sangare.

The 25-year-old has impressed for the Dutch side this term, making 38 appearances across all competitions so far.

His performances have prompted interest from Liverpool, who are said to be targeting a summer move for the midfielder.

Sangare has attracted interest from Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp could lose at least two of his current crop of midfielders this summer, with both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita expected to depart Anfield when their contracts expire at the end of the season.

Loanee Arthur Melo is also set to return to parent club Juventus, which could leave Klopp short of options in midfield.

He is therefore looking for reinforcements, and the club have reportedly identified Sangare as a potential target.

Last summer, both Liverpool and West Ham United reportedly showed interest in Sangare, but the player remained in The Netherlands.

The Ivory Coast international joined PSV from French side Toulouse back in 2020, and has now made more than 125 appearances for his current side.

One potential obstacle in the way of Liverpool’s pursuit of Sangare could be his contract situation, as the player signed a new long-term deal with PSV as recently as last summer.

That extension runs until 2027, which would put his current side in a commanding position during any negotiations for the player.

Despite that, PSV would reportedly be open to the idea of selling Sangare this summer for a fee of around £45 million, although it remains unclear whether or not Liverpool would meet those demands.
