Title contenders: Liverpool need to splash the cash on £22m-rated Brazilian sensation

After being so close to winning a Champions League title, Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern will be hoping that with a few more signings the club can get its hands on a Premier or Champions League title next season. #

The Breakdown

Liverpool have one of the best squads starting elevens in not just England but Europe as a whole. The Merseyside club have one of the most potent attacking line-ups in world football. What they like though is someone who can step in and do a job for Klopp when Firmino, Salah or Mane are injured. That’s why Liverpool need to go after Gremio striker Luan.

The Sun is reporting that although the club are interested in the Brazilian forward, Lazio have now joined the race for his signature. Both Liverpool and Newcastle made contact with Gremio in January and are now reportedly interested in the attacker again this summer. Currently, Lazio have apparently bid £13.2 million for the attacker and could possibly be ahead in the race to sign him.

The striker came to the fore when he helped Gremio win the 2017 Copa Libertadores and was subsequently named South American Player of the Year.

Luan did sign a new three-year deal in November so Gremio want a suitable price for his services, which is thought to be close to £22 million.

At 25-years-old, Luan still hasn’t entered the prime of his career. However, having the Brazilian on the bench could give Liverpool someone on the bench who could be more reliable than the injury-prone Daniel Sturridge and Daniel Ings who looks set to depart.

Is this man Liverpool need to add some depth to the squad Liverpool fans?
