Liverpool willing to meet €60 million release clause for signing Portuguese International from Sporting

Liverpool are keen for securing Goncalo Inacio as per Arne Slot’s tactical requirements. Arne Slot is the incoming Head Coach who is set to replace Jurgen Klopp at the end of the season. The Feyenoord boss insists that the Portuguese will play a vital role in his plans for the Reds.

Sporting CP have recently been crowned champions of Liga Portugal. The 22 year old Portuguese defender emerged as a key player racking up 30 appearances in 32 league games for Ruben Amorim’s side. Inacio has already won six senior caps for Portugal and will be hoping to be a part of EURO 2024.

Why Goncalo Inacio for Liverpool?

Arne Slot often employs a possessional-based play that focuses on the use of center-backs while building the attack and dictating the tempo. Inacio plays as a modern day defender, helping his team to build attacks from the back with his distribution. Not just good on the ball, Inacio’s long stride helps him cover large distances quickly.

Goncalo has displayed his ability of timing his tackles and interceptions. Despite his young age, Inacio’s international experience with Portugal will come in handy for the Reds.

The Reds keen to secure star defender’s signature

Virgil Van Dijk will be 33 before the next season and Liverpool will be looking for a long term replacement. Goncalo can be just the man for the Reds.

Joel Matip’s future remains uncertain and he may leave as a free agent at the end of the season. Ibrahima Konate is injury prone and his unavailability has certainly affected Liverpool. Jarell Quansah is still young and finding his feet for the Reds while Joe Gomez is good, but more of a utility player.

Liverpool are in need of defensive reinforcement. And, securing Goncalo Inacio might be an excellent place to start for the Reds.

Liverpool: Big favorites for Goncalo

Although the Reds will be pushing hard for Inacio, the 22-year old is also linked with the Red Devils and the Magpies who are keen to secure Inacio’s services.

However, Liverpool aren’t going to go down easy as the Merseyside giants are ready to pay the €60 million release clause for Goncalo Inacio.
