Benfica have agreed to let Andre Gomes leave but only if a club meets their €15m valuation, reports Portuguese newspaper A Bola.

The 20-year-old has been in fine form for the Portuguese side this season and has inspired the interest of Liverpool and Manchester City.

However, it is Brendan Rodgers who has been more active in the race for his signature and reports in Portugal suggest that the player is much more likely to be playing at Anfield rather than the Etihad in the near future.

Following interest from the Premier League rivals, Gomes has been pushing for a move away from the club and his agent has now struck a deal with them for his release.

Keen to sell players to balance the books, Benfica believe a €15m bid will suffice having already sold Nemanja Matic to Chelsea for €25m in this window.

For a young player on the fringes of the senior Portuguese national side, Rodgers will see the fee as somewhat of a bargain when his potential is taken into account.

However, Manuel Pellegrini has the spending power of billionaire Sheikh Mansour behind him and could easily gazump Liverpool by making a superior bid.
