ABDOULAYE DOUCOURE could reportedly leave Watford for a fee of £40million this summer.
The 25-year-old, who joined the Hornets for just £6m, has attracted interest from Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool.
It looks inevitable that Javi Gracia’s side will cash in on the French star at the end of the season, according to The Mirror.
Watford owner Gino Pozzo boasts an impressive business model that aims to make substantial profit from up-and-coming players.
And Doucoure, who has flourished since joining from Rennes in 2016, certainly ticks this box.
Liverpool are looking for a potential replacement for Emre Can, who will be out of contract at the end of the season.
The Gunners are at risk of losing injury-prone Jack Wilshere at the end of the season.
And Spurs are understood be viewing Doucoure as a long-term successor for Mousa Dembele, who is out of contract in the summer of 2019.
Earlier this week, the 25-year-old revealed his desire to play in the Champions League.
He told Canal Plus: “Everyone wants to play in the Champions League, the big competitions.
“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.
“I am grateful to Watford, I have the confidence of this, it is the one who revealed me to the Premier League.
“If there is an offer, we will discuss the best solution.”
