Liverpool fans were given reason to get their hopes up yesterday over a deal for Brazilian sensation Luan - before rumours were quickly quashed.
Luan has previously been linked to Liverpool and has a release clause in his contract of £18 million, making him excellent value.
Despite this, fans are keen for the club to start pushing for the exciting forward, who would be a low cost bargain in this inflated transfer market.
Luan is 24-years-old and has not been tested in Europe. Liverpool could be the ideal environment for him to thrive considering recent success of South Americans at the club and Jurgen Klopp's attacking approach.
Liverpool fans reacted on social media with excitement at the initial reports and would evidently be very happy if the club acted decisively and tried to strike a deal...
With Sturridge almost set to live, Now is the best time to sign Luan from @Gremio— Bipin (@ThisIsBipinism) January 24, 2018
This man can play on the wings, can play as a forward (imitate Firmino's role as a striker), can play as No. 10. Just what Jurgen Klopp's @LFC team need.
Just go for him.#LFC#PL
Lot's of tweets yesterday about Luan!!! Why is twitter so quiet today? The Brazilian is worth. He may not be as good as Coutinho but just like Coutinho developed with us, he may do the same. The man loves to score goals. Bring him on #LFC!!!— Al Bush (@Abush27) January 24, 2018
Great to hear the rumours that #LFC are pursuing Luan again, with a very reasonable fee suggested. Reading that Andre Schurrle may very well be available too, and that might be a useful acquisition. All the speculation... #TransferRumours #TransferWindow #TransferNews #YNWA— Paul (@Run_Dolly_Run) January 24, 2018
Rumour #LFC have entered talks with Gremio on error Luan, be a super addition if that was the case.— ⭐⭐James⭐Sweet⭐⭐ (@WeDoneIt5times) January 24, 2018
if we can sign a player like luan, who has proven over multiple seasons and tournaments that he can create chances, assist and score for a fee around 20 million €, we should not hesitate - can play out on the wings too! #LFC #TransferTalk #EPL— Steven Germitsch (@stevengertweets) January 24, 2018
Luan was a reported targeted last summer but it never came to fruition. He’s wonderfully talented and would be a great option. #LFC— Callum Wright (@CallumWright__) January 23, 2018
