Liverpool jump into battle for Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes

Liverpool have jumped into the battle for Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

Correio de Manha says Tottenham have pulled back from a move for Fernandes.

Furthermore, Spurs are reportedly undecided between the 24-year-old and Real Betis star Giovani Lo Celso to fill their creative niche.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are still in the mix thanks to Fernandes' admiration for Jurgen Klopp's tactical style, according to the Portuguese newspaper.

Early frontrunners Manchester City are understood to have pulled out of the race, which had put Spurs in pole position.

An early bid of under £50million was rejected and the Eastlands club vowed to take their business elsewhere.

Lisbon want around £62m for the attacking midfielder.
