With the transfer window fast approaching, Liverpool are said to be planning a bid for Sao Paulo's Brazilian starlet Lucas Moura, who has been on the club's radar for quite some time. Liverpool's director of football, Damien Comolli, has hinted that the club could make a move for the young playmaker.
The youngster has been dubbed the next Kaka, owing to his ability to make his presence felt in the game by linking the midfield with the attacking line. He has already drawn interest from Europe's biggest clubs and Liverpool will hope to win the player's services by signing him on loan in January, for the remainder of their season, before making the move permanent.
Sao Paulo, reportedly, are looking to earn at least £20 million from the sale of the player and with Liverpool's American owners looking to sign players with value or for the future, the price shouldn't be a problem.
Liverpool currently has three Brazilians - Doni, Fabio Aurelio and Lucas Leiva.
Lucas Rodrigues Moura da Silva, 19, is on the list of FIFA's Players to Watch in 2011. He has made 47 appearances for Sao Paulo and has managed to score 11 times. He scored his first international goal for Brazil against Argentina in September.
