Liverpool set to make summer move for €34m-rated South American forward

By | June 6, 2020

Premier League giants Liverpool are reportedly planning to make summer move for 17-year-old Brazilian forward Talles Magno.

The Vasco da Gama forward broke into the senior set-up last campaign and has found back of the net twice and provided one assist in his 15 first-team games for the club thus far.

Magno’s form are believed to have caught the eye of several teams across Europe, with Champions League holders the Merseyside Reds among the team keeping tabs on his situation, according to A Bola reports.

Jurgen Klopp’s side could have stiff competition for his services, though, with the likes of Serie A champions, Juventus, AS Roma and Lazio also credited with a strong interest.

The report suggests that Portuguese giants Benfica have already made an offer of €1m (£876,000) for the talented forward, however, that Vasco are hopeful the interest in him could drum up that price tag furthermore.

Magno recently has put pen on a new deal with the Brazilian outfit which expires in 2022 and includes a €34m (£29.8m) in his release clause.

Jurgen Klopp also keen on to agree deal for RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner ahead of the 2020/21 season.
