Sporting Cp’s super sensation Bruno Fernandes has been a hot favourite for the EPL heavyweights like Manchester United and Tottenham, but Liverpool’s reported offer of £40 million has given them a confirmed chance to land the player this summer.
the 24-year old’s agent, Miguel Pinho was given a price range of €70-80 million by Sporting, with a negotiable range of €60-65 million.
The agent has been travelling between Portugal and England, but target clubs like United or Spurs aren’t convinced with the asking fee, valuing the player at a lower price.
According to Liverpool Echo, Klopp has been winning the race to sign the player, the odds to sign the Portuguese international has been shifted to the favour from 7/4 to 1/9, leaving Solskjær’s club behind at second favourites at 3/1, followed by Atlético at 13/2.
Jornal de Noticia has reportedly claimed from souces about Liverpool potentially having conversation with Pinho for the player.
“The approach came last week and could bear fruit in the near future.”
This means that the English side has already potentially talked about the £40 million tip with the agent.
The Lisbon club is facing some hardship with the midfielder, considering no one is ready to accept their initial offer.
Bruno scored 32 goals and made 18 assists for Sporting CP last season.
