Liverpool are keen to tie attacker Rafael Camacho down to a long-term deal with Porto, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon all long-term admirers of the player, according to the Daily Mail.

The newspaper claim that the Reds want to get the 18-year-old forward, who is highly regarded by Klopp, to pen a new deal as he is entering the final 18 months of his current contract.

The Daily Mail report that Camacho’s suitors are actively keeping tabs on him as he could be tempted away with the promise of first-team football given the other attacking options Klopp has to choose from.

OPINION

It’s no surprise that Camacho has caught the eye of several high-profile teams as he is an exciting talent. The teenager can be deployed as an attacking midfielder or on either flank and does tend to capture attention given his silky skills. Camacho is yet to feature for the Reds’ first-team but that’s more a reflection of the attacking talent in the senior squad rather than any form of  criticism or doubt regarding his potential. Given that the teenager did make the bench for last season’s clash with Everton, then it seems likely the Reds will do all they can to ensure his future with them. While the Daily Mail’s report claims that the youngster could potentially be tempted with a move that gets his first-team football, he no doubts knows he has a bright future at Anfield if he keeps progressing. Unless there’s a huge mouthwatering offer that comes his or the club’s way, then it’s hard to see him packing his bags at the Reds anytime soon.
