Abdoulaye Doucoure’s name has been commonly mentioned alongside the top six clubs in England in recent times.
The 25-year-old’s scintillating form at the heart of Watford’s midfield last season meant a potential move away from the London outfit was on the cards, with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool one side who have been continually linked with the former France youth international.
The Reds do have a plethora of current midfield options on the books in Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Naby Keita, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, so it would be tough for Doucoure to get a regular spot in the team. Nevertheless, the link has got a lot of Liverpool fans talking on Twitter.
Very good player, but we’ve already got Fabinho – no need https://t.co/XYLbT2eOAK

With that in mind, let’s see what some Liverpool fans think of the potential move, with plenty of them believing that the Hornets ace offers more than their current club captain Henderson…
he is better then henderson for sure
Kopp should sell
next 7 seasons LFC Midfeilders would be.

Milner is getting old and Henderson is not good enough. What are you people thinking!

Doucoure-the Henderson replacement: renewing his contract was a matter of increasing his market value. We can get 25-30 for him if we managed to finesse 15 for Ibe.

A few other fans disagreed, citing Henderson’s impact not just on the pitch, but off it too…
Yeah mate let’s just get rid of Milner and Henderson we don’t need our two biggest personalities in our dressing room anymore.

I’m saying the pair are essential to the dressing room mate, we have plenty of depth in midfield with players who are used to klopps system. We don’t need a full reshuffle of the midfield!

One fan felt that that the recruitment of another position should be prioritised more…
No need for any midfielders
Milner, Keita, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Chamberlain, Henderson, Lallana, even Shaqiri can play midfield
We're in dire need to a left back to cover for Robertson, we don't need to chase more midfielders
Let's fix Moreno's problem first

And there was even a shout for the man on loan at Hertha Berlin…
Grujic will be back next season…
