Liverpool are expected to sign the Brazilian midfielder Otavio from Porto this summer.

The 26-year-old picked up five goals and twelve assists last season, and Jurgen Klopp is looking to add more depth to his attack with the Brazilian’s signing.

The attacking midfielder could be signed for a fee of around £34 million, but the Reds will have to pay up before Wednesday’s deadline.

Once the release clause expires, Porto will be able to demand more money for their key midfielder.

Liverpool will have to add more depth and quality to their side if they want to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title next season, and Otavio seems like a good fit.

The technically gifted midfielder can play behind the striker or in the wide areas, and he will add goals and assists to the side.

Liverpool have missed someone like him ever since the departure of Philippe Coutinho, and the Brazilian could add a new dimension for the Liverpool side.

The chance to join a Premier League club will be tempting for the 26-year-old, and working with a top-class manager like Jurgen Klopp could help him improve further.

It remains to be seen whether the Reds can pull off the signing before his release clause expires tomorrow.

The Reds have already improved their defence with the signing of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig, and it appears that they are looking to sort out their attack now.
