Liverpool could agree swap deal to sign 24-year-old PL star

Liverpool have reportedly stolen a march on their rivals in the race to secure the services of Raphinha as Leeds United are eager to snap up Harry Wilson.

Raphinha has impressed in his debut Premier League season for Marcelo Bielsa’s side, scoring and assisting a combined 15 goals in 30 games.

That form has led to rumoured interest from Liverpool, Man City and Man Utd for a player who features predominantly on the right.

According to The Mirror, the Merseyside Reds hold an advantage on their rivals as they are willing to let Wilson head in the opposite direction as part of any transfer.

Wilson is back at Anfield following a campaign on loan at the Cardiff City Stadium, where he registered seven goals and 11 assists in 37 Championship appearances.

The 24-year-old, who is currently away with Wales on Euro 2020 duty, is not believed to be part of Jurgen Klopp’s long-term plans.

Meanwhile, Liverpool shot-stopper Adrian is reportedly close to putting pen to paper on a deal to stay at Anfield next campaign as a cover for first-choice Alisson.

The 34-year-old made six appearances across all competitions this season, one of which saw the player ship seven goals in the infamous 7-2 defeat to Den Smith’s Aston Villa back in October.

With his deal set to expire this summer, the Spaniard was expected to walk away and secure a free transfer to Real Betis, however, he is likely to remain at Anfield.
