Liverpool are keeping tabs on Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira, according to Portuguese journalist Bruno Andrade
The reporter claims the Reds have added the 21-year-old to their list of transfer targets, with the player having impressed for Portugal at the European Under 21 Championships earlier this month:
Fábio Vieira está na lista de referenciados pelo Liverpool… e o interesse acaba por aumentar com as boas atuações do médio no Euro Sub-21, tendo sido eleito o melhor jogador. FC Porto está em cima – e bem – para garantir a renovação do atleta, que tem contrato até junho de 2022

Vieira was named the player of the tournament by UEFA, having played a key role in helping his team reach the final, after wins against England, Italy and Spain before their defeat to Germany.
The midfielder has just one year remaining on his contract with Porto, which has undoubtedly piqued Liverpool’s interest. Arsenal were also mentioned as a potential suitor at the end of last year and there are likely to be plenty of other clubs monitoring his situation.
Andrade says that Porto are confident that Vieira, who has a €30m (£26m) release clause, will sign a new deal. The Portuguese Under 21 international is said to be interested in extending his stay at the Estadio do Dragao, but it remains to be seen whether he has had his head turned by the interest being shown in him.
