Crystal Palace has made it clear that they have no intention of letting go of one of their key players for a bargain price.
The talented central midfielder, Cheick Doucoure, has caught the attention of Liverpool, who are in need of replacements for both Fabinho and Jordan Henderson. The experienced duo is set to depart for the Saudi Pro League this summer, with Henderson joining Al Ettifaq and Fabinho signing for Al-Ittihad.
On 11th July 2022, Doucoure inked a five-year contract with Crystal Palace, and his impact was immediately felt as he earned the prestigious Crystal Palace F.C. Player of the Year award in his debut season. His contributions included 34 appearances for Crystal Palace and 12 appearances for the Mali national team.
According to Transfermarkt.com, Doucoure’s current market value stands at an impressive 35 million euros.

Crystal Palace has placed a hefty price tag of £70 million on Doucoure, signaling their readiness to part ways with the midfielder, but only if their valuation is met. The London-based club is determined to maintain its status as a top-flight team and sees Doucoure as a crucial asset in achieving that goal.
As the transfer window unfolds, Liverpool will have to weigh their options carefully and decide whether to meet Crystal Palace’s demands for Doucoure’s services or explore other potential midfield targets. Doucoure’s future remains uncertain, and it remains to be seen how the situation will unfold in the coming weeks.
