According to Portuguese newspaper record (as cited by Sport Witness), Liverpool are among the clubs interested in signing the teenager who is among the finest talents in Benfica’s academy. This report also claims that the Reds along with Barcelona and Real Madrid tried to acquire his signature and still identify him as a transfer target.

Brito has been quite promising for Benfica’s junior teams and he could well become a first-team player for them provided he keeps doing well for them. If he moves to Liverpool, then it would not be easy for him to make the first-team even in the forthcoming years as the club already have a good set of youngsters who are capable of making the senior team.
