Journalist makes Ruben Amorim point as Liverpool agreement imminent

Posted by

Arne Slot appears to be nearing a move to Liverpool at the end of the 2023/24 season.

With that piece of news in play, Viaplay’s Jan Aage Fjortoft cheekily pointed to prior reports surrounding Ruben Amorim on X (formerly Twitter).

Portuguese football insider Pedro Sepulveda had circulated a claim that the 39-year-old’s agent had already bought an apartment in Merseyside.

It appears a few reports originating from that neck of the woods may not have been entirely on the money.

Where are Liverpool now in Arne Slot pursuit?

Talks are progressing smoothly, though a complete deal has yet to be arranged between the Reds and Feyenoord amid talks over compensation fees.

Paul Gorst’s update on the matter would suggest a finalised deal is at least relatively imminent as the Dutch outfit holds out for a sizeable fee.

Meanwhile, it seems Ruben Amorim is destined to stay put in Lisbon for the time being despite having reportedly caught the eye of both West Ham and Liverpool.

With his CV and ongoing impressive work with Sporting Lisbon, of course, we’d be far from surprised to see him court further interest down the line.
