Thought I'd throw this one in the ring after seeing some paper talk of our intererst.
Age; 25 - 26
Curently plays for Porto where he's scored
8 goals in 8 games I believe or around that return. Decent record at international level with a goal every 2 games or so.
6'1" tall so I'd say he has the physicality to handle the PL
How much is anyone's guess. I've seen figures going fom and initial figure of £5.5m to £8.5m and even £18.5m
Anyone know anymore about the guy?
That's the guy Dalglish wanted to sign (rumoured) last January, it didnt happen but I think at the time they were talking about £4m. He has obviously done okay at Porto, everyone that goes there seems to rise monstrously in value. He is better then the back up we dont have but I think we need to be looking elsewhere.
Wasn't there some fuss about this guy last January whilst he was still at Jaguares? Looks like he might have been a good buy but he has only been at Porto half a season so I think it's a non starter. They spent something like 8mil on him so it would probably take double that at least to prize him away.
