Liverpool set to sign Brazilian winger

Liverpool are chasing Brazilian winger Renato Augusto, according to reports in Germany.

Rafael Benitez has made an official enquiry for the 20-year old Bayer Leverkusen star.

The Liverpool manager has been tracking Augusto for one month and is impressed by the young starlet.

Augusto, who came out of Flamengo’s youth academy, is said to be keen to move to Anfield.

Benitez is looking to address his problem of shortage of right-wingers and Augusto would be a perfect replacement for out-of-favour Jermaine Pennant.

Renato will cost Liverpool close to £10million, and will join fellow Brazilians Lucas, Aurelio and Cavalieri
