Liverpool are known for going under the radar and signing some hidden gems.
The reports in England suggested that Liverpool are linked with Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira.
The 21-year-old midfielder has played all his life at Porto. He has made his way through the youth system at the Portuguese club and made his senior debut in 2020. His contract at Porto is set to expire at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
The midfielder has three assists in four Liga Bwin games this season.
The 21-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Portugal. He has represented Portugal at Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 29 caps and scoring 10 goals.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
The Reds are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 21-year-old as potential transfer target.
Jürgen Klopp has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
Vieira is a skilled midfielder who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch. The Portugal international will offer the Liverpool boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira is interesting Liverpool. Record says the Reds are tracking the youngster. The 21-year-old was Player of the Tournament at the Euro U21 Championships in the summer and is growing in stature in Portugal. Vieira’s deal at Porto is set to expire at the end of the season, meaning the Reds could negotiate with the talented youngster in the January transfer window regarding a pre-contract agreement for the summer. But Porto are currently in talks over a new deal, which would also result in his release clause rising from €30m (£25.8m) to nearer the €50m (£43m) mark. Failure to sign that contract could open the door for Liverpool to secure a cut-price January deal.”
