According to a recent report by Le10 Sport (translated by Sport Witness), Liverpool have joined the chase to acquire the services of Boubakary Soumaré from LOSC Lille. The same source has mentioned that the Reds are considering making a move for the Senegalese midfielder, but it is uncertain whether they will go in for him this month or next summer.
Soumare’s Remarkable Rise In The French Top-Flight
The 20-year-old has enjoyed a brilliant season at Lille after putting in several battling displays as part of Christophe Galtier’s midfield. He has made 25 appearances for the French outfit this term and has one assist to his name across all fronts.
Soumare has averaged 1.1 tackles, 1.2 interceptions, 0.7 clearances, 0.7 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per game for Lille this season (stats via whoscored). He has also represented France at various youth levels but is yet to earn a senior cap for his nation.
The Ligue 1 whizkid has the potential to be a world-class player in his position someday so the Reds will do well to lure him away from France. The talented youngster can also benefit from making a switch to Anfield as he will be able to work with one of the best managers in world football, Jurgen Klopp.
What Will The Ligue 1 Starlet Bring To Merseyside?
Soumare is a powerhouse in midfield as he is a strong physical presence who can make some vital interceptions and crucial last-gasp clearances for his side. He can read the danger quickly and use his strength to overpower the opposition at the centre of the park. What makes the Senegalese prospect such a highly sought after talent is his ability to make driving runs from midfield.
At such a young age, Soumare has already shown a few glimpses of his true potential and is destined to become a top professional in the coming years. The Merseyside outfit can benefit a lot from acquiring his services as Klopp needs to bring in a midfielder who can compete with Fabinho and Jordan Henderson for a place in one of the holding midfield positions in his first-team.
Soumare will be able to learn a lot from Fabinho, who has been a mainstay in the Liverpool first-team this season (when fit). Furthermore, he will be able to link up with his fellow countryman, Sadio Mane at Anfield, which might help him settle into English football quickly.
