Liverpool are weighing up another major coup of a footballer from Portugal, having targeted Otavio. They are in negotiations with Porto attacker, who wants to leave the club in the summer. Portugal international’s priority is to join a top European team, and that is where the Reds come into the fray.
The Reds did business with the Dragons earlier in the year when they roped in Luis Diaz in the winter transfer window. The Colombian forward has turned out to be quite a bargain, having established himself as an indispensable part of the German manager’s attacking setup.
In light of Luis Diaz’s success at Liverpool, the Reds negotiated a big-money move with Benfica to bring in Darwin Nunez this summer. The Uruguayan centre-forward comes on the back of a sensational couple of years at Benfica and is promising to make waves in the PL in the coming campaign.
The Reds are looking to maintain the sequence by once again targeting a footballer from Portugal, in the form of the 27-year-old attacker. The Portuguese attacker has been on the radar of Liverpool for quite some time now, presumably due to the versatility and playmaking skills he brings to the table.
A right midfielder by trade, the Portuguese is indeed a tactically versatile footballer. Otavio is capable of operating on both flanks and even as a number ten. Otavio excels at creating chances, either with his crosses into the box or through well-placed passes in and around the final third.
