Liverpool are closing in on Porto winger Christian Atsu.

The Liverpool Echo says the Ghanaian, a pacy, direct wide player, has been identified as an ideal addition to Brendan Rodgers' squad, but Liverpool are aware that the Porto are likely to call all the shots in negotiations.

Atsu, 21, has just one year remaining his current contract, and has informed the Portuguese club that he does not intend to sign a new one at Estadio do Dragao.

Liverpool believe the player could be available for as little as £3m, and had hoped Porto would agree to a quick sale.
