Liverpool keeping tabs on ‘the new Sergio Busquets’
Liverpool’s scouts were watching 17-year-old Porto midfielder Ruben Neves over the weekend, after the youngster was compared favourably to Barcelona and Spain star Sergio Busquets.
The Portuguese youth international has already broken into his club’s first-team, playing nine times and scoring once in the league. He’s also featured seven times in cup games, five of which came in Europe.
Porto teammate and former Barcelona star Cristian Tello said: “He is fantastic with the ball at his feet, he knows how to position himself and he’s aggressive. He’s similar to Sergio Busquets.”
