Liverpool linked with Porto midfielder

Liverpool are reportedly close to completing a deal to sign Porto midfielder Otavio.

A Bola claim that Jurgen Klopp is very keen to snap up the 26-year-old midfielder as a replacement for the departing Gini Wijnaldum.

Otavio’s current contract, which expires on Wednesday this week, has €40m release clause which will go up to €60m from Thursday, thus prompting the urgency behind a possible move.
