Liverpool reach agreement for first refusal on Porto star

Liverpool reach agreement for first refusal on Porto star

Liverpool have reportedly agreed a first refusal on Porto star Fabio Vieira, in an attempt to secure further value from Portugal in the wake of Luis Diaz.

The Colombian joined the Merseyside club in January and has made an instant impact, registering 4 goals and 3 assists in 11 Premier League appearances for the Reds, and going down as one of the signings of the January window alongside Tottenham’s Dejan Kulusevski.

And, having signed Diaz for what is looking to be a bargain price, Jurgen Klopp and co. are ready to tap into that market once more in the years to come.

Fabio Vieira in the crosshairs

That is according to the Liverpool Echo, who claim that the Reds ‘have reached an agreement to have the first refusal to sign attacking midfielder [Fabio] Vieira’.

In essence, this means that should any bids come in for the midfielder and be accepted, Liverpool will have the option to match that bid. Vieira, still just 21 years old, largely plies his trade as an attacking midfielder, and has returned 6 goals and 14 assists in 27 Liga Portugal outings this campaign.

And, as per the Echo, there is a very reasonable release clause in the Portuguese midfielder’s contract at present, but would cost Liverpool a little more.

‘It has been claimed that Vieira has a £12.7m release clause in his contract, with Porto said to be open to letting him go at the right time’, they report.

‘However, were Liverpool to make a move then they would apparently need to pay more money in performance-related add-ons.’

Should he make the move, he could prove yet another piece of shrewd business for Jurgen Klopp and co.
