As per Yahoo Sport, Liverpool have entered into discussions with South American champions Gremio over the transfer of star forward Luan.
The Brazil international led his side to Copa Libertadores (the continent’s Champions League equivalent) success last year, emerging as the player of the tournament as he bagged 8 goals in 12 appearances.
Currently rated £16million, the 24-year-old plays as a striker and right behind one, and appears ready to prove himself in Europe after establishing himself as a legend on the domestic scene.
The Reds want to replace Philippe Coutinho, and Luan, who was recently voted as South American Player of the Year, fits the bill.
The one-time Barcelona target is available for cheap, and will represent a bargain considering he could be worth at least times 5 of his current valuation in few years’ time.
Luan can create and score goals at will, and could prove to be the final piece of the jigsaw as Liverpool look to challenge for the Premier League title all over again next season.
