The 27-year-old has been impressive this season for Fulham.

According to the report Liverpool have been tracking the Portuguese international before his move to London.

In desperate need of reinforcements in the middle João Palhinha could prove to be a shrewd signing for Liverpool. Moisés Caicedo has been on Liverpool’s radar. However, a report yesterday by David Lynch states that Liverpool believes the Brighton midfielder may be Chelsea bound.

Palhinha has easily adapted to life in the capital, and it is no surprise clubs like Liverpool and Tottenham are now linked with a move for him.
