An Unknown Santos attacker Marcos Leonardo would sign with Liverpool, according to report.




According to a Brazilian TV host, unknown Santos attacker Marcos Leonardo would sign with Liverpool.

In 32 appearances for the Sao Paulo-based team this season, the 19-year-old has scored 12 goals. Scouts are keeping an eye on the youngster after his six goals in 12 Serie A games for the Brazilian team.

Leonardo made his Santos debut in August 2020, and since then, in 91 appearances across all competitions, he has netted 24 goals. In just three games for the Brazil under-20s, he scored seven goals.

Despite his goal-scoring prowess, Premier League clubs haven’t really mentioned him as a target yet.

Leonardo was allegedly sold to a “English company” and would be joining a “English club,” according to a TV analyst by the name of Veloso.

Milton Neves, a different TV reporter, has since reiterated this.

He stated to Esporte na Band that the Corinthians narrowly avoided being defeated by the Santos kids yesterday. The new Romario is Marcos Leonardo, who is moving to Liverpool.

It’s a claim that hasn’t been made before. Furthermore, it’s not really obvious how trustworthy the host Neves is.

The host makes the assertion as if Leonardo’s rumored transfer to Anfield were already old news. He inserts the assertion in the middle of his argument without more discussion.

According to reports, Leonardo’s contract has a £51 million release clause. Additionally, Liverpool has a number of scouts searching for talent in South America.

In fact, they acquired Fluminese’s Marcelo Pitaluga as a regular goalkeeper in 2020.

Muriel Becker, the brother of Alisson Becker, assisted in the scouting of Pitaluga, 19.

In 2017, Liverpool came very close to paying €3 million for Real Madrid sensation Rodrygo. That was a year before to his €45 million signing with Real. Elan, a former Man City star, obstructed the transaction.

He told BBC Spor: “I went to the board and said, ‘No, no, we can’t let him leave for this.
