Vinícius has struggled to impress this season, but the 19-year-old has already totted up 59 appearances for the Spanish outfit – registering seven goals and 15 assists.

Liverpool have also been linked with a move for Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele, as per the Daily Mail. The duo have earned comparisons to one-another as they’re the new kids on the block for Spain’s two biggest clubs.
Therefore our reported interest in Vinícius should really come as no surprise, but the rumours lack solid credibility with none of the usual suspects jumping on the news.
When it comes to the Reds, it’s always best to wait for the likes of James Pearce, Neil Jones, Melissa Reddy, Dave Maddock or Paul Joyce to pick it up before putting too much stock into a rumour.
