Liverpool have made €45m (circa £40m) bid to Sporting CP for Bruno Fernandes, according to a report from Correio da Manha, the most circulated and the leading daily newspaper in Portugal.

Fernandes has been widely linked with a number of clubs this summer, most notably Manchester United, but if reports from Portugal are to be believed, the Reds are hoping to hijack any move that United had lined up for him.

Interest in the 24-year-old is expected to be plentiful after his incredible 2018/19 season in which he scored 20 goals and created a further 13 in just 33 league games.
