Moving back to Anderlecht, after having spent last season playing on loan for Italian second tier side Avellino, Belgian Under-21 international midfielder Samuel Bastien (19) is more and more of a main target for Liverpool.
Interviewed by SportWitness, his agent, Franklin Mala-Makani, talked about the 1996-born player's forthcoming future:
“Maybe Liverpool talked directly to Anderlecht's general manager, but Benfica also made an official offer. We'll see, since the general manager from Anderlecht comes back from a small vacation, and then we will know more this week.
We will talk when it becomes official from Liverpool Football Club. We prefer to talk about an official offer".
