We hadn’t heard of David Carmo before today, but now see the 21-year-old’s name popping up everywhere!
Sky Sports Vinny O’Connor just claimed LFC made a loan offer today with an option to buy the Portuguese in the summer – with Portuguese outlet Record stating Braga had earlier rejected a permanent bid.

Transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano then added fuel to the fire by adding a winking face on a tweet that proposed the rumour, as you can see below.

With Liverpool already set to sign Ben Davies (medical passed, contract and fee agreed) and Ozan Kabak (medical passes, contract agreed – Schalke trying to sign Shkodran Mustafi as a replacement) we can’t really see Cormo arriving as well!
The multiple bids for centre-backs though does make us slightly worry as to the seriousness of Joel Matip’s injury – with the club coy on the issue since he was subbed off injured versus Spurs on Thursday night.
Davies and Kabak through the door though will certainly bolster Jurgen Klopp’s options.
