Crystal Palace has set a new asking price of £70 million for midfielder Cheick Doucoure, according to recent reports. Liverpool has shown interest in the player, with manager Jurgen Klopp keen to continue strengthening his squad . However, the high asking price stated may impact the Reds's decision to pursue a deal  for the Malian.

Doucoure has been identified as a potential alternative to Liverpool's current defensive midfielder, Fabinho. However, the £70 million asking price may be too steep for Liverpool, especially given the number of areas of the pitch that is mooted to be addressed by the club.

Liverpool has already spent a significant amount on transfers this summer, signing Alexis  McAllister, Dominik Szoboslai and Wataru Endo. 

The high asking price for Doucoure has also raised concerns about Palace's stances, with reports suggesting that the Eagles are "really desperate" to keep the player.

Doucoure 23, still has four years left on his contract at Selhurst Park.

In any case, the £70 million asking price may be proven to be a significant factor in determining Doucoure's future, as well as Liverpool's pursuit of the player rather than the number of years left on his contract.
