Contact Already Made – Liverpool Set to Pay $33million to Agree Signing – Not Keane

In the absence of star playmaker Sadio Mane, Liverpool have looked a completely different side going forward and they need major reinforcement in the summer transfer window.

The Reds have to sign a top playmaker and an out and out center forward if they are to have any chance of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

As far as the strike-force is concerned, Liverpool have been linked with a move to sign a talented youngster in the form of Brazilian international and Flamengo striker Vinicius Junior.

Back in March, Sport Witness exclusively revealed that Liverpool are one of the clubs, who have contacted Flamengo and inquired about signing the 16-year-old striker.

Now, according to reports (SW via Marca), the Merseysiders are set to pay a fee of 30 million euros ($33million) i.e. Vinicius’ release clause to secure his signature. The likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also prepared to pay the mentioned sum.

The teenage forward has been fantastic for his national side at U-15 and U-17 levels and it will not come as any surprise if he earns a call up for the senior team sooner rather than later.

For the U-15s, Junior played 6 fixtures and scored as many goals. He made his debut for the U-17s back in July 2016 and so far, in 19 games, he has scored 17 goals.

In March, the Samba starlets won their 12th South American Under-17 Football title held in Chile. Vinicius was the top-scorer of the competition with 7 goals and and was also named the best player.
