Liverpool are said to be closing in on the signing of Gremio forward Luan in a £26 million transfer.

According to David McDonnell of the Daily Mirror, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has been keeping tabs on the 24-year-old for the past year. It’s suggested the striker turned down a new deal with his current club last month and is now set to depart, with just one year left to run.

“The player’s representatives, including his business advisor Jair Peixoto and agent Gianni Losito, flew to London in April,” added McDonnell. “It is understood contact was made with Anfield representatives, and terms discussed.”
