Atletico Nacional striker Marlos Moreno has been linked with several clubs including Liverpool. His fine form in Copa Libertadores has caught the eyes of several European heavyweights and they all seemed interested in him.
Now Liverpool has received a boost in his pursuit as reports have emerged in Portugal, spearheaded by A Bola, that Sporting Lisbon has pulled out of the race to sign Moreno. One less competition is definitely a good news for the Reds.
The player is only 19 years old and has already attracted interest from Altetico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan, Benfica and Porto apart from Liverpool. While the waiting room for his signature is crowded it is likely that the player will leave after the club president revealed that the club is willing to listen to offers. £8 million is the valuation of the player and offer of that amount is reported to be enough to sign the player.
