Liverpool are reportedly close to finalising a £26m deal for Brazilian striker Luan.
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is said to have been tracking the 24-year-old – dubbed the next Ronaldinho – for the last year and has enlisted the help of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino to convince him to move to England.
According to The Mirror, a deal is “close to being agreed” with Luan’s club Gremio after he turned down the offer of a contract extension to remain in the club just last month.
The newspaper says that the player’s representatives flew to London in April and met with Anfield executives to discuss personal terms and agree on a valuation.
Luan was part of the Brazil team that won football gold at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro last summer and earlier this year made his full international debut in a friendly against Colombia.
