‘Very complete’ player Leeds has made a substantial bid for Liverpool

Jesse Marsh’s Leeds United have been linked with Ottavio, and land Road loyalists will be encouraged to listen to one of his compatriots say FC Porto is good enough to play for star Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

He is that good.

According to a report by Portuguese outlet O Jogo this week, Leeds has rejected a €30 million (£25.75 million) bid for Ottavio.

The 27-year-old, who can serve as an attacking midfielder or a winger, has also been linked with Everton, while former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners Liverpool turned down an offer for the Portugal international last summer .

Former Porto left-back Pedro Henriques rates Ottavio very highly, and the Portuguese believes his compatriot is good enough to play for Liverpool and Real Madrid, among other clubs.

Leeds target Ottavio good enough for Liverpool

Bunkada quoted Henriques as saying, as translated by Sport Witness: “Ottavio would do no worse than other players. I’m from Real Madrid, Manchester City, Barcelona or Liverpool.”

“In any of these teams, Ottavio will play and play no worse than any start, but it’s a good thing for FC Porto that most people don’t think so.

“Obviously there are a lot of distracted people out there and it’s good for FC Porto because Ottavio is a very complete player and will fit into almost all the best European teams that are the best in the world.”

Can transfer happen?

In our view, Leeds United would be a better team with Ottavio.

However, it remains to be seen whether the West Yorkshire club is able to sign the 27-year-old.

The attacker has a €60 million (£51.50 million) release clause, and Leeds may have to pay it or move closer to that figure to sign him.

Ottavio made 32 appearances in the Portuguese league for Porto last season, scoring three goals and providing 11 assists in the process.
