Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on the Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis.
The Premier League team is said to have dispatched scouts to watch the midfielder in action during Benfica’s 2-0 win against Famalicao on Friday, according to a report that was published in 90 min.
The Portuguese defensive midfielder has been an important player for Benfica this season, and his performances have drawn the attention of a club from the Premier League. Benfica is interested in signing him.
At this point in the season, it should come as no surprisҽ that Liverpool’s central midfield could use an upgrade in terms of both quality and depth.
The club will lose players such as Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and James Milner when they leave as free agents, and players such as Jordan Henderson and Fabinho have seen a significant dip in performance recently.
It is obvious that Jurgen Klopp will need to acquire talented midfielders, and Luis has the potential to turn out to be a long-term addition for the club. Transferring to Liverpool would represent a significant advancement in the player’s professional career.
The defensive midfielder, who is 23 years old, will add cover on the defensive end, as well as physicality and presence in the middle of the park.
The young midfielder has a ton of untapped potential, and if he were to work with a world-class coach like Klopp, he could be able to realize more of that potential. According to the source, Tottenham were also interested in the midfielder, and it rҽmains to be seen whether Liverpool will be able to bҽat their competitors to his signature and get his services.
Both clubs are presently competing to earn a berth in the following season’s Champions League, and whoever manages to finish in the top four of the current season’s standings will likely have a significant advantage when it comes to acquiring promising young players like Luis.
ROBERTO FIRMINO NOW ATTRACTING INTEREST FROM MLS
As it was announced on Friday that the attacker will be leaving Liverpool at the conclusion of the season, Roberto Firmino is said to have piqued the interest of clubs in the Major League Soccer (MLS).
According to a journalist named Ben Jacobs, the Brazilian international’s decision to leave Anfield this summer has alerted some teams in America over a potential swoop. One of these teams, Atlanta United, is a Major League Soccer side that has previously looked into signing Firmino ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
Despite the fαct that the Five Stripes may no longer be in the running for Firmino due to their acquisition of Giorgos Giakoumakis from Celtic in January, many top sides in the MLS could still be interested in signing the Liverpool fan favorite due to the fαct that the division is now in a position to attract such a player.
Although MLS clubs are interested in Firmino, Atletico Madrid and Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia are also vying for the services of the 31-year-old forward. MLS clubs are not alone in their pursuit of Firmino. Yet, at this point in his career, it is quite doubtful that the striker will go to the Middle East and pursue a career there. The interest in Major League Soccer (MLS) is only growing each year, and Firmino is a name that could attract a lot of eyeballs depending on which franchise chooses to pursue the attacker. Therefore, signing for a club in America’s top-flight could be an interesting decision for Firmino, as the interest in MLS is only growing each year.
With interest already high in Liverpool, the £29 million signing from Hoffenheim has a big decision to make at the end of this season. However, with MLS clubs circling Firmino, the Brazilian could consider a move to America ahead of a move to a traditional European powerhouse, such as Atletico Madrid. The closer we get to the summer transfer window, the more likely it is that European clubs will show interest in Firmino. However, even if a top side comes in with a contract offer, the Major League Soccer (MLS) could be a great move for the South American star given how big the league is getting with each passing year.
Lorenzo Insigne caught everyone off guard when he signed with Toronto FC in the summer of 2017, and this is just one example of how some of the biggest names in European soccer are now taking their talents to the United States. And as for Firmino, the Brazilian forward could be the next European-based superstar to make the switch to Major League Soccer in order to become the poster boy for a team.
