27 year old attacker Horta, who is signed to SC Braga, is said to have a price tag of €20 million and Liverpool and Arsenal are both keen to sign him according to Fichajes.

While Horta’s current contract with Braga is not due to expire until 2026, it is thought that he is likely to move to England to one of the two clubs.

It is well known that Liverpool are on the look out for new members of the squad, in particular to help reinforce the team while Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane take part in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Ricardo Horta has become one of the most sought-after talents in Portuguese football since his switch from Malaga to Braga in 2017.
