Report: Liverpool to meet with agent of Bruno Fernandes to propose new offer

The Reds are to put forward an improvement on their previous offer of £40 million.

Liverpool are ready to meet with the agent of Bruno Fernandes to discuss an improved offer for the Sporting Lisbon midfielder, according to Correio da Manha.

It was reported last week that the reigning Champions of Europe offered a final offer of £40 million for the 32-goal star last week.

Now, Correio da Manha is reporting that Jurgen Klopp wants to offer the £40 million plus Rafael Camacho as an advance on the previous offer.

The 24-year-old was one of Europe’s most feared players last season. His 32 goals went alongside 18 assists from 53 appearances.

Fernandes can operate either as a number ten or as an out-and-out central midfielder.

Manchester United and Tottenham have reportedly also shown interest in the Portugal international.

 

TBR Verdict

Sporting Lisbon were one of the admirers for Camacho anyway so throwing him into the deal appears to make sense.

Fernandes would be a quality addition to Liverpool and his presence would give them something that was lacking last season.

For all of Klopp’s success during 2018/19, goals weren’t overly forthcoming from his trio of midfielders.

Naby Keita, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson or James Milner aren’t really known for their goals and Fernandes provides a different option.

The fact he spent a lot of last season playing as a number 10 would also allow the German boss to mix things up.

The money being touted plus Camacho on top would make a great deal for Liverpool. Fernandes’ arrival at Anfield could see the Reds complete one of the signings of the summer.
