Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has confirmed the club's interest in signing Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Carlos Teixeira.

The Reds have been linked with the 19-year-old, who impressed against them playing for the Portuguese side in the NextGen series this season. Teixeira is out of contract in the summer and Liverpool are ahead of a number of top European clubs after reportedly making an £850,000 bid.

"There might be something about that," Dalglish said.
