Liverpool and Tottenham in chase for Brazilian

We at the Football Transfer Tavern are pleased to hear that Brazil international winger Bernard is set for a move to Europe with Tottenham and Liverpool among five clubs chasing him, according to The Independent.

The 20-year-old is keen to leave current club Atletico Mineiro for a fresh challenge and Europe appears to be the destination he is after.

Spurs and Liverpool both failed to qualify for the Champions League last season and so face a tough task convincing the winger that England is the place to come.

Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk and Borussia Dortmund are the other three clubs in the race for the Brazil international and Champions League football could be the clincher in a move to one of those rivals.

Porto had a £15 million bid rejected for Bernard earlier this summer with Mineiro demanding in excess of £20 million for their talented academy graduate who has earned a stellar reputation in South America.

Bernard is set to play his final game for his hometown club this weekend in the Copa Libertadores final second leg.
