Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards are both impressed with young FC Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira.
The youngster, who was voted Player of the Tournament at the U21 Euros just gone, is out of contract in 2022, which boosts our chances of getting him for a good price.
UOL Esporte journalist Bruno Andrade suggests Vieira is on our shortlist as we look to bolster our central midfield options.
In this tweet, he says Porto want to renew his terms, but his recent showing for Portugal U21s has only heightened our interest.
