Liverpool are chasing Brazilian wonderkid Evanilson according to reports from Netflu.
The site say Liverpool have made contact for the 20-year-old with the view to bringing him in during the winter window.
Evanilson was a standout performer at U20 level last year and finally made his senior debut on Sunday evening.
The prolific youngster continued his goal scoring ways with a brace for Fluminense against Corinthians.
Jurgen Klopp has went on record to say Liverpool may be in the market for a striker. Rhian Brewster is in need of a loan move however the Reds must bring in a replacement before he is allowed to leave.
Evanilson is a prime target not only for his talent but for the overall low risk of signing him.
The youngster’s contract is due to expire in February. However, Liverpool cannot wait until then to make a move for Evanilson. With the player showing no desire to re-sign with the Brazilian club, they’ll likely look to sell as soon as possible.
According to the above report the striker could be available for just £4m next month. This represents a massive bargain and literally no risk at all for Liverpool
This deal really is a no-brainer. Even if he turns out to be all hype Liverpool will have only spent small on him anyway. In a much more likely scenario, Evanilson becomes a top player under Klopps tutelage over the coming years.
He’ll play alongside the like of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. What better mentors could you give an up-and-coming goal scoring prospect.
