Liverpool are linked with numerous top quality players and one of them is Brazilian international and Flamengo star Lucas Paqueta.

The Samba star is a wanted man with top clubs like PSG and Manchester United interested in hiring his services as well (Le10Sport).

However, if reports in the media are anything to go by then it will not come as any surprise if the South American ends up securing a move to Liverpool. According to Premium Sport’s Andersinho Marques, Paqueta’s agent is in Liverpool at the moment.

The 21-year-old star can play in multiple attacking and midfield positions but naturally he is a central attacking midfielder.

In the last campaign, he scored 7 goals and provided 4 assists in 30 games in all competitions for Flamengo. He made his senior international debut last month and so far, he has played two games for the Seleccao.

As far as Liverpool’s attack is concerned, Klopp lured Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri to strengthen the department in the summer transfer window but he needs to add more quality and depth up front.

The Merseysiders have not replaced Philippe Coutinho as yet and his compatriot, Paqueta, could be the main to finally replace the little magician. As per the provided Le10Sport link, the attacker’s current deal will expire in 2020 and it has a release clause of 50 million euros (£44million).
