"Keep an eye..." - Romano gives major update on key Liverpool target as Reds plot summer move
| Last updated
A key Liverpool transfer target could potentially be on the move this summer, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Reds are already planning for a summer overhaul after a season where they have failed to reach the heights of previous years.
“There are always around eight to ten clubs in attendance at Benfica to keep an eye on Antonio Silva, Goncalo Ramos, Florentino Luis,” Romano said.
“They have fantastic players, so it’s absolutely normal. At this stage nothing is concrete yet, but I’d keep an eye on Silva in the summer in case of big proposals.”
Silva is a big prospect
The 19-year-old defender is an exciting young prospect and could grow to become a long-term successor to Virgil van Dijk if he made the move to Anfield. The Transfer Room claim Liverpool are 'hopeful' that they can complete a transfer.
Silva has kept 11 clean sheets in 20 league games this season, playing a full 90 minutes each time.
Given the impressive performances, it's unsurprising that clubs are interested with Benfica having a reputation of producing quality youngsters.
Although he might find it hard to push the pairing of Ibrahima Konate and Van Dijk out of the Reds' line-up, a move to the Merseyside giants would be too big of an opportunity for him to turn down.
