Speaking about the deal, Rodrygo’s agent Nick Arcuri told Canal do Nicola: “When Rodrygo went to sign his first professional contract with Santos, aged 16, a Liverpool director called me saying that Klopp already knew the player, had seen the material, had already come to see Rodrygo personally.

“He had gone on YouTube, searched ‘talents from Brazil’, Rodrygo had appeared and he was very young. He came to Brazil and liked him. They contacted me, the Liverpool director wanted him to be his first signing, Rodrygo.”

The forward is not likely to be short of suitors given that he has proven himself on the biggest stages of all in his career, scoring eight and assisting four in 24 league appearances so far this season.
