Liverpool eyeing seventh summer signing, £33.9m bid to be upped

Liverpool are expected to make a new, higher offer for Sporting CP midfielder Joao Mario before the close of the transfer window, according to reports from A Bola.

The Reds have snapped up six new players this summer, while welcoming January addition Marko Grujic, in what has been a busy first off-season so far under Jurgen Klopp.

It’s already been claimed that a €40m (£33.9m) offer for Mario from the Kop side has been rebuffed by Sporting, but reports now claim that a fresh, increased bid is expected from Merseyside.

The 23-year-old starred for Portugal at EURO 2016, appearing in each of their seven games as they won their first ever piece of international silverware and is considered to be one of the finest talents in the Primeira Liga.

Liverpool have already snapped up Georginio Wijnaldum to bolster their central midfield ranks, so it’s likely that, should Mario move to Anfield, players will exit.
