"Keep an eye..." - Romano gives major update on key Liverpool target as Reds plot summer move

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.

Jurgen Klopp's side remain in a tight battle for the top four and their 1-0 defeat away to relegation threatened Bournemouth on Saturday has only made things worse.

They remain six points off Tottenham Hotspur in fourth with a game in hand, and qualifying for the Champions League or not will have a big effect on their transfer plans.

Writing in his exclusive CaughtOffside column, journalist Romano has explained that key Liverpool target Antonio Silva could leave Benfica.

“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.

Liverpool raided the Portuguese giants for Darwin Nunez last summer and fellow Premier League club Chelsea recently broke the British transfer record to bring Enzo Fernandez to Stamford Bridge.

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.
