The report does go on to add that there was no ‘blue tick’ behind the account but insists that the profile was pertaining to be the forward and had thousands of followers. 

The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to Merseyside in recent months after his stellar campaign in Ligue 1 and could cost up to £70m.
