Some Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Sporting Lisbon midfielder and reported summer target Bruno Fernandes, after he set up all three goals in his side’s 3-1 win over Portimonense on Sunday.
The Portugal international was said to be on Jurgen Klopp’s radar in the summer window and a bid was reportedly lodged for the attacking midfielder, but he ended up staying with Sporting despite interest from Manchester United as well.
Fernandes scored 32 goals and also recorded 18 assists in the 2018/19 season which put his name up in lights, and he appears to have started the new campaign in similar fashion after setting up all three goals in his side’s latest win.
The 24-year-old has already registered a goal and four assists in three Liga NOS outings this term, and his form has caught the attention of some Liverpool fans.
Let’s take a look at what some of the Reds fans on Twitter have been saying about the Portuguese star…
