Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes has been attracting the interest of several Premier League clubs this summer including Liverpool.
Recent reports in the British media claimed that the Reds are among the favourites to sign Bruno Fernandes during this summer’s transfer window.
According to the specific publication from the stables of The Sun, Liverpool are right behind fierce rivals Manchester United in the race to sign the Portuguese international player.
Bruno Fernandes will definitely add a goalscoring threat from midfield to any team he ends up with this summer.

Apart from Liverpool and Manchester United, the 24-year-old has also been linked with other Premier League clubs like Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
Bruno Fernandes scored 20 goals and also provided 13 assists in 33 league games for Sporting Lisbon during the just concluded season and he would be adding a real goal threat to the Liverpool team if the Reds are able to sign him ahead of other contenders.
His signing might be bad news for Dutch international Georginio Wijnaldum whose place in the Liverpool XI will be under threat from Bruno Fernandes.
Liverpool Starting XI (4:3:3): Alisson Becker; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Bruno Fernandes; Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino
