Liverpool FC are in talks with Brazil midfielder Allan Rodrigues de Souza from Internacional as the club looks to bolster it’s squad.
The 18-year-old midfielder impressed Liverpool FC coaches during a tournament held in Indonesia and Kuala Lumpur earlier this year, when both Liverpool FC and Internatcional’s under-18s teams featured.
The Guardian reports that Liverpool FC are in talks to bring the player from Porto Alegre to Anfield.
The report says:
Allan, as he is more succinctly known, would cost around A?500,000 and represents part of a concerted effort by Liverpool to bolster their options at youth level this summer. The Anfield club have this week signed 16-year-old Dutch winger Bobby Adekanye, who was available after his 2011 move from Ajax to Barcelona was declared illegal by Fifa, and 17-year-old striker Brooks Lennon. The United States under-18 international spent a trial period at Liverpool in January 2014 and has joined from MLS side Real Salt Lake, where he scored 31 goals at academy level last season.
If signed, Allan will become the fourth under 20 player Liverpool FC would have secured this summer, with Joe Gomez, a defender, the other player besides the one mentioned above.
In last four years, Liverpool FC have given debuts to lot of their young players, including Jerome Sinclair, Raheem Sterling, Jordan Ibe, Jon Flannagan, Andre Wisdom, Jordan Rossister, Joao Teixeira, and Brad Smith as the club continues to pursue the policy of producing players from within.
With talented players like Harry Wilson, Sheyji Ojo still to make their debut, Liverpool FC hope to continue to bolster the first team squad from their academy and are once again dipping into the transfer market.
