Reds Miss Out On Samba Target

Reds Miss Out On Samba Target

Liverpool appear to have missed out to AC Milan in the race to sign Brazilian starlet Lucas Paqueta from Flamengo.

The Reds have been linked with a swoop for the talented midfielder, while Manchester United were also keen, but it looks as though the Italians have won the day.

Some reports have claimed that the 21-year-old has already undergone a medical and a 35million euros deal is all but done between Milan and the Brazilian club.

Flamengo director of sport Carlos Noval says that is not the case but he does expect a move to be finalised sooner rather than later as negotiations continue, which would suggest Liverpool have missed out.

“It’s not a done deal with Milan yet and we prefer to talk only when things are done and dusted,” Flamengo director Noval told Tuttomercatoweb.

“We are talking Negotiations are on-going, but as far as we are concerned, they are not closed yet.

I do think it can be finalised in two weeks, though, it should be a couple of weeks, yes.”
