With the unexpected transfer of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to Saudi Arabia, Liverpool worked to acquire a defensive midfielder.
Despite some complications, Liverpool was able to acquire a player whose main job was to play at the bottom of the midfield by acquiring 30-year-old midfielder Wataru Endo from the Japan national team.
Liverpool, looking to further strengthen their squad, have shown interest in Crystal Palace midfielder Cheick Doucouré, who has made contact but no concrete offer, but have finally made a move and offered him a personal contract, according to Sports Zone.
“Liverpool have sent Cheick Doucouré a contract offer in the hope of reaching an agreement.”
“Liverpool wants to sign a 6 before midnight Friday and is keen to vary his options, Cheick Doucouré is one, for sure, but he’s not alone…”

Clubs are making moves in the run-up to deadline day, and Liverpool is no exception, desperate to strengthen in the final stages of the season. However, Crystal Palace does not want to release the player and will need between £50m and 70m, depending on the source of the report.
Even if it is not that unprecedented in the inflated world of soccer, it is still a lot of money. The future moves will depend on how much Liverpool value his ability.
Will Liverpool be able to secure a new midfielder at the last minute?
