Anfield MegaDeal: Liverpool fighting to sign 'wonderful' €45m Brazilian who wants to play for Klopp

Liverpool are once again being linked with one of Ligue One's most exciting Brazilian players.

According to French newspaper Le10 Sport this week:

"Liverpool and Atlético Madrid are the two top contenders to sign Lucas Moura from PSG this summer, and the clubs are set for a bidding war over the Brazilian attacker".

Liverpool have been regularly linked with Moura this season, and the 'wonderful' is reportedly keen to work under Jurgen Klopp. There are also some clear positives to bringing Moura to Anfield:

* Plays for one of Europe's biggest clubs, so he's experienced the pressure that comes with relentless expectation.

* Played alongside the likes of Ibrahimovic, Silva, Motta, Pastore, Veratti, and Cavani, and that experience with elite players should (in theory) help him hit the ground running in England.

Additionally, when it comes to end product, €45m-rated Moura is a an upgrade on all of Liverpool's senior attacking players (bar Mane):

* Moura: 89 goals/assists in 220 apps(One every 149 mins)

* Firmino: 44 goals/assists in 88 apps (One every 150 mins)

* Coutinho: 75 goals/assists in 178 apps (One every 174 mins)

* Lallana: 39 goals/assists in 122 (One every 220 mins)

One thing's for sure: Liverpool fans want Klopp to sign Moura. In September, I conducted a poll on the subject, and the results were emphatic:

A possible replacement for Coutinho if he leaves for Barcelona?
