Back in June, multiple reports from Portugal stated that Liverpool were keen on Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira.

It was said the Anfield outfit had been in contact with the player’s entourage, and to get a deal done, they would need to trigger his €30 million exit clause.

That rumour immediately went quiet, and as a Portuguese outlet Record features a piece on Fabio’s potential renewal, the interest from the Merseyside giants is recalled.

The sports newspaper writes that since his current contract expires next summer, the Dragons now see his contract as a priority. The club’s board want to renew it and raise the release clause to €50 million.

Record then points out the speculations which linked him to Jurgen Klopp’s side. They say nothing mattered because Vieira always gave the Liga Portugal Bwin giants his preference.

It’s said Porto didn’t get any satisfactory proposals in the summer, and that is why he was never even close to departing Estadio do Dragao.

What seems clear now is that the ace is about to get a lot more expensive, unless a club show up and finds a deal before the fresh contract is signed.
