Liverpool could reportedly set their sights on a switch for Porto wonderkid Fabio Vieira.
The 21-year-old midfielder has enjoyed a breakthrough season, with the Primeira Liga heavyweights last season, playing 29 games in all competitions and banking one goal and one assist.
Vieira also played a prominent role in Portugal’s run to the U-21 European Championship final – assisting his side’s winner against Spain national team in the semi-final – and he played the full 90 minutes in the final as Portugal suffered a heartbreaking loss to Germany.
After being named player of the tournament at the U-21 Euros, the Liverpool Echo speculates that the Reds could look to make a move for Vieira this summer.
Vieira was previously rumoured with a move to the Gunners in the January transfer window, and with his deal expiring in 12 months’ time, the prospect of a cut-price move could be appealing for interested parties.
The Portuguese midfielder rose through the youth ranks at Porto and has enjoyed a prolific stint with Portugal’s U-21 side, scoring six goals and assisting two more in 12 international games.
Liverpool also keen on agreeing on a deal for another talented midfielder Isco who has been rumoured with an exit from Santiago Bernabeu ahead of the next season.
