Liverpool linked with Real winger

Liverpool are being linked with a  move for Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior.

It comes with news that Real are prepared to sell a number of players in the summer to fund a move for Kylian Mbappé of PSG.

Now 20, he was one of a trio of Brazilian youngsters who were signed in quick succession by the Spanish champions in 2017, along with Rodrygo and Reynier.

He has gone onto make 65 appearances for them in all competitions, although his progress has recently stalled under Zinedine Zidane.

It is not the first time that Liverpool have tried to sign him – they have had two previous bids for him rejected. Now though Real may be prepared to let him go, with a fee of £40 million suggested.

Vinicius Junior, who is now 20, has appeared for the Brazil national team once – a defeat away to Peru in 2019.
