Liverpool FC have agreed a £7m deal to sell teenage forward Rafael Camacho to Sporting Lisbon, according to reports in the British media.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the Reds will receive an initial fee of around £5m, followed by further add-ons and a 20 per cent sell-on clause as part of the deal.

The same story says that Camacho was attracting interest from the likes of AC Milan, Schalke and Wolves, but Sporting Lisbon have now won the race for his signature.

The move represents good business by Liverpool FC, with the Reds having signed Camacho for just £270,000.

Camacho made his first-team debut for Liverpool FC last season against Wolves in the FA Cup, but he struggled to break into the first team under Jurgen Klopp.

Indeed, the 19-year-old ended up only playing one single minute of Premier League football for the Reds last season.

Liverpool FC enjoyed a successful campaign last term as they finished second in the Premier League and also won their first major trophy under Klopp by beating Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final.

They will be looking to go one step further next season and win the Premier League title for the first time.
