Porto are awaiting a bid from Liverpool for star man Otavio’s services, with the Liga Nos outfit reportedly expecting a potential offer from Jurgen Klopp’s men today.
This comes from A Bola (via Sport Witness), with the Portuguese outlet pointing out that the Brazilian’s release clause is set to rise to €60m after the end of June.
The Portuguese press has covered the Reds’ supposed interest with great fervour, though there remains a lack of confirmation regarding the Merseysiders’ interest closer to England.
Without further reliable sources closer to home willing to support the claims coming out of Portugal, it’s difficult to see the playmaker being a likely transfer.
The player’s versatility is a trait that would clearly appeal to the recruitment team, though it’s unclear whether his lack of a goalscoring presence would still signal him out as an ideal front-three man.
Being able to file out in the centre of the park, it’s possible that Jurgen Klopp may be considering taking his midfield in a very different direction, though the 26-year-old seems too far out of left field a target to be genuine and one we’d advise taking with a pinch of salt.
