Luan: Liverpool or Man Utd for Gremio striker?

Liverpool transfer target and Gremio forward Luan has addressed recent speculation linking him with a move to Anfield.

Luan was linked with Liverpool earlier this week, with reports stating that the club are ‘in talks’ over the Brazilian.

The 24-year-old is reported to have a release clause of €18million (£15.6m) in his current contract, and Liverpool are one of a number of interested clubs.

Luan was asked about the speculation on Wednesday, and says there is nothing “concrete” to reveal.

“If I knew, I wouldn’t hide,” he said. “I always said that I would leave it to Gremio and to my agent, and if they had something concrete, they should talk to me. No-one has come to me, so there is nothing.

“It has to be good for me, it has to be good for Gremio. I will not rush to want to leave soon, just like in the middle of last year.

“For the moment that we were through, I decided to stay. It was my decision alone. Now it’s the start of the season and I want to regain my form and rhythm to play. What I know is that I want to play the next game as soon as possible here at Gremio.”
