As per the renowned journalist, the youngster has a release clause of £35million and the Merseysiders are even prepared to activate it to get the signing done.
“I see him closer to Liverpool, for example, a club that has been following him for a long time.
Newcastle is a club that were the first to travel to Vigo to monitor him and you know they are willing to pay the €40m (£35million) of his release clause. Liverpool are as well. Now the ball is in Veiga’s court. He is going to decide which option he wants”
