‘He Reminds Me Of A Faster Bobby’ ‘More Like The New Suarez’ Fans React To Claims That Liverpool Are Preparing Bid For Brazilian Starlet

Liverpool are expected to make an offer for Santos forward Marcos Leonardo soon, according to reports in the Brazilian media.

A number of English teams (including Chelsea) have been linked with another Brazilian youngster, Palmeiras’ Endrick, but it is believed that the Reds have decided against a move for the 16-year-old as they want Leonardo instead.

Some supporters on Twitter are excited by the links, although a few still feel that Endrick would be the better option:

Leonardo is having a breakout season in Brazil, having scored seven goals in 17 league appearances for Santos. The 19-year-old has also bagged two in four games during this year’s Copa Sudamericana (the South American equivalent of the Europa League).

Despite still being a teenager, the striker has already racked up 100 matches at senior level so he looks as though he is very much ready for a move to Europe. We shall have to wait and see, though, whether Liverpool make a formal approach to sign him.
