The same article states that Liverpool FC’s scouts have been watching the Brazilian playmaker’s performances for the promoted side in the Premier League this term.

According to the same story, the Reds are increasingly impressed with the 24-year-old’s influence at Leeds following his summer move to Elland Road from Ligue 1 side Rennes.
