Reds poised with a £500k bid to secure ninth summer signing
Liverpool are poised with a £500,000 bid for highly rated Brazilian midfielder Allan Rodrigues de Souza.
The 18-year-old has been earning great reviews in his homeland, and has attracted the attention of Brendan Rodgers’ scouting network.
Meanwhile, Rodgers could be ready to do business in the opposite direction with unwanted Spanish midfielder Luis Alberto attracting interest from Deportivo de La Coruna.
Alberto, 22, was signed for £6.8 million by Rodgers from Barcelona’s B team in 2013 but failed to make a Premier League start and spent last season on loan at Malaga only for the Spanish side to cut the two-year temporary signing in half this summer.
With Alberto’s future clearly non-existent at Anfield, Rodgers is keen to try and cut his losses and a return to Spain looks imminent.
