Right-winger on Reds’ radar
Liverpool have opened talks for the £22million signing of OGC Nice right-winger Ricardo Pereira.
The winger is currently on loan in France from Porto, and his performances alongside Mario Balotelli aren’t going unnoticed.
Pereira is enjoying a second year at the French outfit with his contract at Porto set to expire in 2019, and the Portuguese heavyweights are prepared to listen to offers.
It’s believed a £22 million bid will prize him away from Portugal, although the Premier League side will have to fend off competition from Serie A side Inter Milan, who are also watching him closely and could be interested in making a bid.
