Liverpool are reportedly eyeing a move for Benfica B youngster David Tavares after the 20-year-old impressed scouts during the Reds’ friendly prior to the Champions League final.

Jurgen Klopp’s side took part in a friendly against Benfica B prior to the Champions League victory over Tottenham, and Tavares is said to have impressed Liverpool’s scouts.

According to talkSPORT via Portuguese outlet O Jogo, the Reds are eyeing a move for the 20-year-old but no official bid has been made as of yet.

Liverpool were reportedly impressed by Tavares’ physicality and aggression in midfield in the pre-Champions League final friendly, and his tackling ability was also said to have caught the eye.

The 20-year-old had been set to break into Benfica’s first team squad last season before sustaining an ankle injury which ruled him out for the majority of the campaign.

Tavares is expected to feature in the senior side next season, however, should Liverpool not pursue a move for the youngster.
