Porto are preparing to sell Otavio – with Liverpool keen.
The Reds have been linked with the Brazilian playmaker in recent days, who has been tipped to be a possible replacement for Gini Wijnaldum.
A Bola says Otavio will leave Porto “imminently” with Liverpool likely to be his destination.
Liverpool have “advanced forcefully” to bring Otavio to Anfield, with manager Jurgen Klopp playing a big role in trying to land the 26-year-old.
Otavio’s current deal has a €40m release clause which expires on Wednesday, which then goes up to €60m, and the report expects a deal to be completed within the next couple of days.
