Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing 19-year-old Brazilian defender Lucas Beraldo from Sao Paulo.

A report from 90min claims that Liverpool are keeping tabs on 19-year-old Brazilian defender Lucas Beraldo, and they could look to make a move for him in the coming months. Apparently, European giants like Bayern Munich are keeping tabs on the young defender as well, and it remains to be seen whether Liverpool can beat the competition and secure his services.

Liverpool are in need of defensive reinforcements right now, and the 19-year-old could prove to be a quality long-term investment. Recent reports have linked the Merseyside club with several centre-backs, including Goncalo Inacio. Meanwhile, they have also decided to retain Jarell Quansah instead of sending him out on loan.

Liverpool did well to improve their midfield options during the summer transfer window. But they need to plug the gaps in their defence if they truly want to compete for major trophies in the coming seasons.

Ibrahima Konate and Virgil Van Dijk are the only reliable central defenders at the club right now. So, the Reds must invest in another quality centre-back soon. Beraldo is highly rated in Brazil and he has a big future ahead of him. It remains to be seen whether Liverpool decide to sign him in the coming months.

The 19-year-old might not be ready for regular first-team action, but he could be a solid, long-term asset for Liverpool. The Reds have a rich history of nurturing talented young players into established first-team stars, and they could help Beraldo improve as a footballer and fulfil his tremendous potential.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp has done well to nurture talented young players during his time at Anfield, and working under the German manager would be ideal for the 19-year-old. It remains to be seen whether Liverpool submit a concrete proposal in the coming months.

With other European clubs interested, the Reds might need to move quickly in order to secure his services. Beraldo will be tempted to join a Premier League club if there is an opportunity ahead of him, and Liverpool are certainly one of the biggest clubs in the world. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few months.
