Liverpool are targeting a €30m deal for an impressive Marseille defender, while Man Utd have two new wingers on their wanted list after going cold on Jadon Sancho, according to Monday’s Euro Paper Talk.



Liverpool have switched their transfer focus to Marseille defender Boubacar Kamara, according to reports in France.

Jurgen Klopp is in the market for a new centre-half this summer with Dejan Lovren looking to move on.

The 30-year-old Croatian had been linked with Napoli as part of a £54m approach from the Reds for Kalidou Koulibaly. But the Serie A’s decision to hold firm to Koulibaly’s €100m asking price has ruled Liverpool out.

Furthermore, Reds chairman Tom Werner has informed Klopp he will have a limited transfer budget to work with this summer.

As such, Le10 Sport claims Liverpool have sounded out Marseille over a possible deal for classy centre-half Kamara.

The 20-year-old has established himself in the OM defence this season, playing 28 times in all competitions.

As per the report, Liverpool are ready to rival Everton for his signature after learning he could leave for around €30m.

With Lovren, Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana all set to depart and freeing up the funds, a swoop for Kamara will appeal to Liverpool.

Chelsea are also reported to be interested. However, the report states the France U21 international would make Anfield his next move were the Reds to make a firm offer.
