What is inevitable with the coming of a new manager to every club is the relative increase in transfer market activities and Liverpool are no exception as they have been reportedly keeping tabs on Porto’s midfielder Reuben Neves with new manager Jurgen Klopp sanctioning a deal for the player.
Several clubs have been attracted to the 18-year-old play maker but Liverpool are thought to be front runners after making their intentions know to Porto – it is understood that the Reds are willing to make player the highest paid teenager in world.
Liverpool started keeping tabs on the player beginning the first month of this year and they formally spoke to Porto about a deal for the player, this is as revealed by Mirror Sport in January. Neves is represented by eagle eyed Jorge Mendes and the player has been eulogised for his deep lying midfield techniques, maturity and composure on the ball.
Neves is currently a regular for FC Porto. But even though Liverpool interest in the player was before the appointment of Klopp, he has said that he is the solely in charge on players transfer in and out of the club. It is a new era in Liverpool and we hope to see some new faces join the Kop.
The Portuguese youngster is likened to Deco and he has had 42 appearances for Porto in the Primeira Liga.
