Recent reports are suggesting Liverpool could move to sign Brazilian international Lucas Paqueta. According to Premium Sport journalist Andersinho Marques, the Reds have come forward for the 20-year-old starlet.
So far, in 15 appearances (all competitions), Flamengo attacking midfielder has scored three goals and provided four assists in the current campaign.
Few days back, UOL Esporte claimed that the player’s representative travelled to London to listen to offers from big European clubs. The Brazilian publication mentioned that the South American player has got a release clause of €50 million in his contract. Paqueta, who can effectively be deployed in the central/attacking midfield, is highly rated in his country.
Liverpool were actively interested in signing Nabil Fekir from Lyon, but the French club recently ended the negotiations with the Merseyside club and confirmed that the attacking midfielder will be staying.
The Reds still have not replaced Coutinho and Fekir had the quality to replace the former No.10 at Anfield. Now that the 24-year-old star is staying with Lyon, Klopp must act swiftly to sign a quality alternative and is considering multiple options. And recently his side were linked with a move for Mario Gotze.
