Whilst a deal is yet to be agreed between Benfica and the Anfield-based outfit, there’s a growing level of confidence that appropriate terms will be thrashed out between the two sides.
It would mark a phenomenal start to life as our sporting director for Michael Edwards’ protege, Julian Ward, securing a move for one of the most exciting talents in world football as Sadio Mane appears poised to depart for Bavaria.
Able to play out wide on the left-flank and straight through the middle, the 22-year-old would replace much of the versatility lost from the potential sale of our world-class No.10.
Having registered a ludicrous 34 goals in 41 games (across all competitions), the Uruguayan stands out as a distinctly more goal-centric threat up top, in a similar vein to Diogo Jota with whom he will surely be in direct competition.
