Leto could sign for Reds this week

Liverpool are looking likely to sign another Argentinean youngster, Sebastian Eduardo Leto, according to the vice-president of his club Lanus.

Lanus have also received bids for the twenty-year-old midfielder from River Plate plus an as-yet-unnamed Spanish club, but Liverpool are reported to be the only club prepared to pay the £1.85m fee Lanus are demanding. Leto has scored six goals in 34 first team matches.

Speaking to an Argentinean website, vice president Ruben Ferretti said: “There is interest from Liverpool, but nothing is concrete yet. We still have to go on discussing it.” Ferreti said he was hopeful that the deal would be done, and felt it would be complete by the end of the week: “I have a good feeling about it. If a transfer is done, it will be done this week.”
