By North-west correspondent Alex Stevens
Highly rated Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura is the most likely player to join Liverpool in the remaining weeks of this summer’s window, according to a report.
Sky Sports’ Football Whispers section claim that the 23-year-old tops the running as a possible summer signing for Jurgen Klopp ahead of the new Premier League season.
It is said that Moura has shot back up to the top of the list as a possible transfer continues to be discussed.
The pacy winger had an impressive campaign for the French champions in the 2015-16 season, scoring 13 goals and supplying five assists in all competitions.
Moura, who can provide great versatility by playing on either wing, joined Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2013 for £30million when he was 20 after Manchester United refused to match the bid.
