Liverpool interest in £60m rated Fulham Mercurial midfielder, Joao Palhinha is soaring, reports Daily Mail Football
Though Liverpool are understood to be the most serious suitor but there are others in the race to sign the Portugal international.
Palhinha has made a big impression since arriving from Sporting in the summer. His brilliant performances, though, come as a double-edged sword for the Cottagers.
He still has over four year left to run on his current deal with Fulham, so they are under no pressure to entertain losing him. But make no mistake, the vultures are circling around him. He was signed for £20million, but sources claim that Fulham now value Palhinha closer to treble that amount. But even at £60million, Palhinha would be close to half the price of Jurgen Klopp’s No 1 central midfield target, Jude Bellingham. Fulham are confident that they can keep Palhinha for a least one more year – but interest is growing.
