Merseyside club in pole position to sign Sporting midfielder Bruno Fernandes and planning to make a bid during this transfer window. Reds have problems in the squad as James Milner already 33-year-old, Adam Lallana is in bad form, Xherdan Shaqiri heavily linked with several clubs, and they need replacement.
Portugal international is the perfect option in this situation as he had an amazing campaign and proved his worth one more time. Klopp set to spend considerable money on the player during this summer. Man United, Atletico Madrid, Man City, Chelsea and Tottenham are also keen to sign him, and there will be a real contest for the star.
The 24-year-old attacker joined the Lions from Sampdoria in 2017 with a £9m deal. He is one of the best midfielders in Europe and a captain of the club. In this season, Portuguese playmaker made 53 appearances, scored 32 goals and provided 18 assists in all competition. It is a great result, and he can do much more with world-class partners.
Bruno has contracted with the Portuguese club until 2023, and his release clause is nearly £55m. He is a regular player of the national team squad and also helped them to win the UEFA Nations League title which is already a significant achievement for the player.
Probably Fernandes will accept the right offer from the German coach. Liverpool will do everything to add him this summer, but it won’t be easy as Red Devils, Los Rojiblancos, Citizens, Blues and Spurs also preparing to make an offer during the transfer window.
