Manchester United, Chelsea and Ligue 1 giants PSG are all said to be monitoring the Brazilian, with Jurgen Klopp the latest to show an interest

Liverpool are the latest European club to show their interest in highly-rated Santos midfielder Thiago Maia, according to ESPN.

The 19-year-old is considered to be one of the hottest prospects in South American football, having shone in the Brazilian top flight and for the national side as they took gold at the 2016 Olympics.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain are all said to be monitoring Maia, but will have to fight off competition from Jurgen Klopp’s Reds if they are to land the starlet.

The German manager is reportedly keen to add a central midfielder as cover for captain Jordan Henderson and has a number of scouts keeping a close eye on the teenager.
