Liverpool are close to completing a deal for Allan Rodrigues de Souza, according to reports.

The Brazilian midfielder trained with the first team at the Reds' Melwood facility on Tuesday, and the Daily Mail reports that talks have been taking place over a £500,000 move from Internacional.

Announcement pending?

Deportivo La Coruna have also been linked with a move for the 18-year-old, but after being snapped alongside Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho it appears that Brendan Rodgers is set to win the race for the player.

Allan first impressed Liverpool coaches at the Frenz International Cup, where he helped Internacional's U18s lift the trophy following a 3-2 final victory over Estudiantes.

His arrival would continue the focus on adding more young talent at Anfield, with 16-year-old winger Bobby Adekanye and 17-year-old striker Brooks Lennon already joining this summer.

Other transfer activity

Uruguayan teenagers Juan Manuel Sanabria and Agustin Pereira are also currently on trial at Liverpool from Nacional - Luis Suarez's old club - and both are training with the youth team ahead of the new campaign, according to the paper.

On the first team front, Rodgers has already added seven players to his squad this summer, with Firmino, Nathaniel Clyne and Christian Benteke all arriving on Merseyside for significant fees.

Raheem Sterling is the biggest name moving in the opposite direction, joining Manchester City for £44million, whilst Iago Aspas and Sebastian Coates have also left Liverpool for transfer fees, joining Celta Vigo and Sunderland respectively.
