Liverpool have opened talks with Gremio for youngster Matheus Biteco.

The Mirror says the 17-year-old midfielder was part of the Brazil team that won this year’s prestigious Toulon tournament, and did enough to convince the Reds to finally make their move after following his progress for the last 12 months.

Brazilian rules prevent players being sold to overseas clubs until they are 18, but with Biteco’s birthday falling on June 28 there are no longer any red tape issues that would prevent his transfer.
