Liverpool in talks for Internacional's Allan - sources

Liverpool are in discussions to sign Brazilian teenage midfielder Allan Rodrigues de Souza from Internacional, sources have told ESPN FC.

The 18-year-old would cost around £500,000 if the deal went through.

Allan impressed Reds scouts as he helped his team with the Frenz International Cup, held in Malaysia and Indonesia in January.

Liverpool also took part in the competition, going out at the quarterfinal stage.

The midfielder would join the Reds' academy set-up, along with new signings Bobby Adekanye and Brooks Lennon.

Nigeria-born winger Adekanye, 16, is a former Barcelona youth player, while American striker Lennon, 17, arrives from Salt Lake City.
