Liverpool make bid for FC Porto midfielder Otavio

Liverpool have made a bid for FC Porto’s Otavio, according to reports stemming from Portugal.

Who is Otavio?

Otavio, now 26, joined FC Porto in September of 2014, departing Brazilian outfit Internacional for a reported fee of £2.25m.

However, Otavio was then loaned out to fellow Portuguese side, Vitoria Guimaraes SC.

After a decent loan spell with Vitoria, which saw him score seven and assist nine in 38 outings, Otavio then returned to Porto where he has since become a fairly regular feature.

All told, the Brazilian has notched 188 appearances across all competitions for Porto. In said ties the attacking midfielder has scored 19 and assisted 49.

42 of those outings came in the 2020/21 campaign, with Otavio managing to earn five goals and 12 assists for Porto.

Liverpool bid for Otavio

Now Otavio, who is currently tied down at the Estadio do Dragao until 2025, appears to have caught the eye of a top Premier League side.

Sport Witness, citing Portuguese outlet A Bola, are reporting that Liverpool have made a bid for Otavio.

It is said that Reds are offering €23m plus the transfer of Marko Grujic in exchange for the Brazilian player.

It is added that Porto, who had Grujic on loan last season, made it clear they had no intention to mix up the deals, but Liverpool were insistent on doing it.

If Liverpool cannot include Grujic in the deal though, it is believed Otavio has a €40m release clause.
