Liverpool has reportedly made an official bid of £40m for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes, according to Dailystar
The 24 years old star is on the radar of other Premier League clubs like Tottenham and Manchester United.
Liverpool has been keen to make a move for Fernandes who has netted 31 times in 50 games for Sporting in the last season.
Fernandes was also a part of the Portugal team that won the UEFA Nations League recently.
Fernandes has become one of the most sought players in European football after having two great seasons at the club.
Sporting aims to raise at least £50m by selling Fernandes and have contacted several Premier League clubs.
The reports suggest that Liverpool want to seal the deal before their rivals Manchester United make a surprise move for the player.
The Portuguese publication Correio da Manha states that Red’s have made a £40m bid for the midfielder.
Jurgen Klopp is seeking to reinforce more strength to his squad for the next season to become more competitive in the Premier League.
The Liverpool boss wants to add more strength in the midfield and Fernandes would add more quality in that area.
Fernandes recently spoke out about his future and affirmed that he wants to play in England one day.
“I never said that I wanted to leave, I am happy here,” he said.
“I would only leave if Sporting also agrees to this. I dream of playing in England.”
Fernandes has played 11 times for Portugal and has scored once.
