Liverpool’s interest in the Vasco da Gama youngster Talles Magno continues to be a hot topic in the Brazilian media.

This time, it’s Bandeirantes’ TV show Donos da Bola who had a little to say about the pursuit for the 17-year-old.

It’s been claimed that Vasco da Gama are going under a huge financial crisis, and Talles could end up being the solution for their problems.

Liverpool were reportedly the first to move for the player, and currently lead the race ahead of clubs from Italy and Spain.

Donos da Bola highlights the fact that Talles has many appearances for Brazil’s youth levels, and that’s something very important in transfers to Europe.

In the Premier League’s case, that’s crucial for the teenager to get a work permit.

Vasco weren’t expecting to sell the wonderkid so soon, but given the financial crisis, they are now considering letting him go in the summer transfer window.

Since the player turns 18 in June, he should be fine to move once he has celebrated his big birthday.
