According to 90min, Liverpool’s eyes are also on Portugal, and they have sent scouts to the summit clash with Sporting to check the performance of 19-year-old midfielder João Neves, who plays for Benfica.
The teenager has scored two goals and assisted two goals in 38 games, and has also made seven appearances in the Champions League. He has also made seven appearances in the Champions League and has experience on the big stage among young players.
In the match in question, Benfica won a dramatic come-from-behind victory. In added time, João Neves scored the equalizer, and in the 97th minute, the game was turned on its head. He played well as scouts from Liverpool looked on.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are also scouting Antonio Silva (Benfica) and Gonzalo Inácio (Sporting), and are planning to strengthen their squad from Portugal, following in the footsteps of Luis Díaz and Darwin Nunez.
