Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is looking around for new players in case he loses Emre Can on a free transfer this summer.

And Doucoure, 25, is one of those understood to be on his list of potential targets as he prepares to make changes to his squad over the close season.

The former Rennes player has also attracted interest from Arsenal and Tottenham on the back of his consistently good performances for the Hornets.

And now Watford must fear losing one of their most influential players over the course of the summer following an interview he gave to French television.

Speaking to Canal Plus, Doucoure was asked about Liverpool and their interest in him.

He said: “Liverpool is a club that needs no introduction. I was impatient to play at Anfield, I wanted to feel the atmosphere.

“For me it would be a dream to play for a club like this.”

Not only has he showed up as one of the most industrious midfield players in the Premier League this season, but with seven goals Doucoure is also Watford’s leading scorer.

His all round game plus the ability to have an impact going forward has led to Klopp showing an interest in making a bid for him this summer.

Much will depend on what Can decides to do at the end of the season, when his current deal at Anfield runs out.

Liverpool have offered him a lucrative new deal, and Klopp has spoken openly about how much he wants him to stay, but Can is yet to commit.

He has already held talks with Juventus, but the 24-year-old has frustrated the Serie A giants by delaying giving them a decision about signing on a free transfer.

The Germany star is trying to wait until after the World Cup finishes before making a final decision over his future.

And with Bayern Munich also now expressing an interest in taking him back to the Bundesliga, there is no shortage of options open to him.

But Juventus could be first to withdraw their bid as they look to plan for next season as quickly as possible, and even Liverpool will not want to wait forever.
