Liverpool linked with Rennes superkid Eduardo Camavinga

Liverpool are being linked with Rennes superkid Eduardo Camavinga.

The Daily Express says Liverpool could snap up Camavinga this summer to replace Georginio Wijnaldum, who looks set to depart when his contract expires. Barcelona are the frontrunners for the Dutchman while the Rennes midfielder has been compared to Patrick Vieira.

Liverpool look set to lose Wijnaldum at the end of the season when his contract expires.

However, Jurgen Klopp could take advantage of Rennes' situation with Camavinga, who has told the club he will also not sign a new deal.

The 18-year-old has been tipped for stardom and has been called the next Vieira for his ability on the ball.

With Wijnaldum's contract coming to an end at the end of the season, it appears the Dutchman will depart Anfield for nothing.

With Camavinga's contract expiring in the summer of 2022, the French club have been desperate for him to one a new one. However, Camavinga has rejected that deal which opens up the possibility of him leaving over the summer - with Liverpool one of several interested parties.
