Liverpool are reportedly interested in holding midfielder Daniel Cabral, who is also capable of playing in other central roles and in defence.
The 18-year-old is an important player for Brazil’s youth setup as he – and Marcelo Pitaluga – helped the Seleção to U17 World Cup glory in 2019.
According to Flazoeiro, the Reds are keen on Cabral and could even make a move this month.
The teenager has four years remaining on his contract and the same report claims it would take a bid of £27million to dislodge the midfielder.
With Jurgen Klopp previously mentioning how careful Liverpool are under the guide of FSG, we at Empire of the Kop would be shocked if a deal in excess of £25million was sanctioned this month.
If there was money to be spent, it’s of our option a senior centre-half would be prioritised, not a teenage midfielder.
That being said, Klopp is known for cherry-picking gems from around the world – with Pitaluga being one of his more notable additions at Liverpool.
This report on Cabral seems a bit pie in the sky to us, but perhaps this rumour is one to keep an eye on, Reds.
