Liverpool are one of three named clubs who are showing an interest in Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi this summer, with the Eagles said to be looking for a minimum of £65 million for the England international.

The Telegraph reports that the Reds are one of the clubs ‘alerted’ by the defender’s contract situation at Selhurst Park. He currently has two years remaining on his deal, but Palace are keen to hold talks over a new deal when he returns from the Euros.

He caught the eye with his performance in helping England keep a clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Serbia on Sunday evening. He is expected to be back in the starting XI for the clash against Denmark on Thursday.

Should Palace fail in getting him to sign a new contract, then Palace are said to want a minimum of £65 million for the 23-year-old this summer. The club are reported to value Guehi at a similar price that that Everton have placed on Jarred Branthwaite.

Elsewhere, Liverpool are reported to be close to completing a deal for 16-year-old Wolves defender Alvin Ayman. The Secret Scout reports that a deal between the clubs is ‘close’ with Liverpool potentially paying up to £1.5 million for the teenager.

The centre-back is yet to make a first team appearance for Wolves, but has been with the travelling squad for Premier League matches. The deal has already been compared to the successful acquisitions of Trey Nyoni and Ben Doak over the last couple of years, with Liverpool looking for a repeat of those kind of deals.

Ayman has made seven appearances for Wolves’ U18 team last season. He joined the club from Bradford City’s youth team just last summer.
