Cape Town - Liverpool assistant manager Pep Lijnders has revealed the Reds are interested in a potential deal for Wolves star Ruben Neves.

The highly-rated 22-year-old has enjoyed a strong first season in the Premier League, with Wolves pushing for a top-seven finish in their first campaign back in the top flight.

Neves' performances have not gone unnoticed and Lijnders, who worked with the midfielder during their time together at Porto, admitted recently that the Merseysiders are interested in signing the talented Wolves star.

"I know him very well, his ambition, his passion for the game, his professionalism," he told ESPN.

"I know what he gives to the team and this type of player always interests us.

"I recognised him when I saw him at Wolves. I saw technique, professionalism; I saw the 2013-14 player I knew."
