Klopp reportedly chasing £31m youngster

As the Mirror reports (via Portuguese Record), Liverpool could be thinking seriously about signing Porto’s midfielder Ruben Neves, whose price is set around £31 million.

The 19-year-old already has a total number of 46 league appearances for Porto over the past two seasons, and he managed to score one goal for each season. With one cup goal added in 2015/16, we come to the total of 75 appearances and 3 goals for this young player.

It is understood that Klopp is a great admirer of his talent, and that he’s going to to his best in order to lure him away from Stadium Dragao, and land him at Anfield. However, it surely won’t be an easy job to do, because Ruben Neves is already regarded as one of the best young players in Europe, and not only that, but he is already captain of the Portuguese club also.

With all this being said, it looks like he is already a great player, and we can only imagine how bright his future is.

If the Reds manage to bring him, it would mean that Liverpool is still one of the greatest clubs in the world, despite their bad results in past few years. However, Neves would surely think twice about coming to a club without European football next season, specially given the demand he has generated for his talents. Currently, there is a slim chance of this transfer happening.

  1. Dear Niraj,

    Who is this “we” you continually refer to? You are no red so stop trolling.

    If you were a red, you’d be aware of Klopp already bringing in a top ‘keeper from, a commanding CB on a free and a young 19 year old CM. The first two has graced the Bundesliga and latter sounds every bit like Neves, only he’s played in a league where they kick you and was a fraction of the asking price of.

    As for Hector and Goetze being lost causes, I guess we’ll have to wait until the Euros and transfer season is over. Er…right?

  2. looking at the players we are SUPPOSEDLY after, if we get another LB, this Neves guy, the Mexican Herrera and either Mane or Higuaín we aren’t going to get any change out of £110m so that would seriously be a show if intent.
    The strange thing is that, should we go for those players, we’d have an almost completely new midfield with Can and Neves as defensive midfielders and Grojic (remember him?) Coutinho, Firmino, Herrera, Milner, Lallana and Henderson competing for the attacking midfield roles.
    Although my knowledge of most of them is similar to my knowledge of Quantum Physics I think it could realistically be bad news for Henderson, Ibe and Allen in the short-term.
    With that lot we WOULD be back in Europe the following year!
    Anyone see it differently? Plenty of scope for various line-ups . . .

  3. Do not expect Liverpool to engage itself in buying such players. If we cannot secure the services of players like Hector, Gotze ,,,do you believe that we can look for players like Neves…come on don’t try to fool us.

    We are only making intents of buying such and such players and in the end we are left with no signings. Just see what Man Utd has acted…they have already bagged the services of the Villareal defender….no tam tam whatsoever..they have acted swiftly…

    Liverpool will never get quality players..we have to contend ourselves with the likes of Moreno, Lallana and Mignolet…Good luck for next season..hopefully we may end up at the 8th place again
