The agent of Liverpool midfield target Lucas Paqueta was reportedly spotted on Merseyside over the weekend as the Reds look to complete a January deal.
Italian journalist Andersinho Marques claimed that the Flamengo star’s representative, Eduardo Uram, had travelled to Europe to initially discuss a move with AC Milan, despite the Reds being very much in the running for his signature.
And Klopp’s men appear to have stolen a march on other suitors for the 21-year-old, with Uram also said to have visited Anfield to discuss a move for his client.
Globo Esporte reports that Paqueta will be made available for transfer by Flamengo in the January transfer window, with a fee of around £27million being mooted.
Manchester United and Barcelona have also been strongly linked with the player, who is being tipped to become the latest South American prospect to take Europe by storm.
