Reports linking Liverpool football club to various midfielders/attackers around Europe have refused to follow their usual trajectory of going away. Even after the manager has be unequivocal in that regards saying it will take something serious to consider recruiting players in this window.
The club sit atop the Premier league table with four points above defending Champions Manchester City. They have scored fifty goals and conceded 10 in the process but yet they are being linked to a teenage attacking midfielder.
The recent one to be connected to the club is Benfica’s youngster Joao Felix according to Correioda Manha, a Portuguese newspaper.
The reports claims that a £62 million bid have been rebuffed by the club from Liverpool for the youngster and that the club value him at about €120 million.
Jurgen Klopp hasn’t been so keen to delve into the winter window due to the number of players he has at his disposal. Aside injuries, the team seem to be in a good way given that must position have at least a cover.
However, securing the services of a teenager who has racked up six goals in 17 games so far this campaign, doesn’t look like a priority at the moment.
Although Joao is arguably one of the brightest young players in his homeland at the moment and Benfica appear to be holding out for the highest possible bid for him from top European clubs.
