Liverpool have been credited with an interest in Gremio striker Luan by a Spanish newspaper reporting Barcelona’s pursuit of the Brazilian.
Luan has attracted the interest of clubs across Europe with five goals in his first eight appearances of the Brazilian domestic season; his form has also earned him a call-up for the Brazil Olympic squad.
Grêmio unlikely to sell Luan to Barcelona for the €20m the Spanish club intend to offer, says Lancenet. Grêmio want above €30m to sell him.

It seems unlikely that Liverpool would win any battle with Barcelona for a player, especially when Luan will be playing at the Olympics alongside Neymar.
The report – in Sport – suggests that Gremio refused to negotiate with the Reds, presumably because they are keen to do a deal with Barcelona.
