Liverpool fans are brimming with excitement over the prospect of the Anfield side signing Brazil wonderkid Lucas Paqueta.
The player is said to have emerged as a target for the Reds, who consider him an alternative to Lyon star Nabil Fekir. But Manchester City are also reported as being keen, with the Premier League champions willing to trigger his £40m release clause.
With various outlets making claims as it relates to Liverpool's interest, their supporters are quite piqued and have urged the Merseyside outfit to bring the player to Anfield.
Here are some of the best reactionary tweets:

We should get him A.S.A.P— kobby_gronnah (@qmg_434) June 15, 2018
Get fekir and allow Southampton to sign him, we will get him in 2 seasons— Gerrard icon joe (@iamgerrardoxa) June 15, 2018
if he's going to leave then i hope its to Liverpool. He's the perfect Klopp player, can play anywhere on the front 3 and as a CM. Presses like a madman as well.— Vinícius (@VvRrodrigues) June 15, 2018
Paqueta could spark a transfer battle between Liverpool and City, this summer and it's very likely other clubs join too. While it's way too early to tell how good he could be in the Premier League, the fact that he was called up to Brazil's provisional World Cup squad does indicate how highly he's rated in South America.
