Liverpool submit €20m bid, they can complete important January signing


Liverpool could solve their centre-back woes with a move to sign Sao Paolo starlet Lucas Beraldo in the January transfer window.

It was devastating to learn of Joel Matip's ACL injury especially given his contract expires at the end of the season.

Jurgen Klopp may now move to sign a centre-back when the winter window opens in less than two weeks with Lucas Beraldo a potential option for the German.

According to Italian news outlet Tutto Juve, Liverpool, Arsenal and Juventus are all keen on signing him.

Zenit St. Petersburg had an €18 million offer rejected as Sao Paulo want €20 million. Leicester City are expected to make a bid that matches their demands.

If Liverpool make an offer that satisfies the Brazilian club, they could gazump Leicester and ensure they find a solution to the diminished depth at centre-back.

Their are question marks over Beraldo's readiness for a move to the Premier League given he's only 20 and plays in Brazil but, by all accounts, he's a very talented young player and has made an impression on the Reds' scouts.

Reports last month suggested Liverpool are in pole position to reach an agreement with Sao Paulo but with the January window now days away, a formal approach has yet to materialise.
