Brazilian Club Gremio Deny Liverpool Approach For Luan

Liverpool are possibly preparing for life after Philippe Coutinho – who's desperately courted by Barcelona – by chasing Brazilian forward Luan but his club Gremio have revealed they are yet to receive an offer from the Premier League side.

The Reds were reported to have sent a scout to South America to watch Luan in action in Wednesday's 2-1 Copa Libertadores victory over Godoy Cruz.

Sampdoria and Spartak Moscow have made official approaches while Arsenal are also said to be interested in the player but club vice-president Odorico Roman insists the club have received no communication from the Reds regarding a potential swoop.

"I do not know of any other proposal," he said. "We had two firm approaches, from Sampdoria and Spartak. 

"They were made, but Luan remains as a Gremio player at the moment."

Discussing his future on Wednesday, Luan said: "I will decide soon. My thoughts are still on Gremio.

"I saw people on social media asking me to stay. I know of the proposal [from Spartak] but we have to decide.

"On Thursday, I'll speak more calmly and give you the answer."

Luan made his senior Brazil debut in a 1-0 friendly victory over Colombia in January – the match played to benefit those affected by the Chapecoense tragedy – having played a key role in the country's Olympic success last year.
