While labelling a footballer as the next version of a current star might not be that helpful for their development, it does make it much more exciting as a supporter when your club manages to sign them.
There’s been a bit of talk about Vasco da Gama centre-forward Talles Magno for months now, and a recent report should be great news for Reds supporters.
They claim that the Merseyside giants are now in talks with Vasco da Gama for U17 Brazil international, and they should now be considered as the club who’s in pole position to add him.
They claim that he’s been touted as the next Neymar, while he’s also a World Cup winner at youth level alongside breaking into the Vasco da Gama club despite his young age.
The finances also look favourable for the Reds as they indicate that his buy out clause is said to be €48m, but the Brazilian club are struggling financially and they might be forced to accept as little as €20m to let him go.
It’s suggested that he’s capable of playing anywhere across the attack while he’s also over 6 feet tall and physical, so he should be the perfect fit for the PL. The talks are being handled by a super agent who’s helped to take a lot of big names to Europe in recent years, so hopefully, a deal can be done soon.
The Brazilian centre-forward is a versatile attacker who has featured predominantly on the left for Vasco but could offer depth across the frontline as Jurgen Klopp looks to bring in some younger alternatives to his regular attack.
