According to the Scottish Sun, the Hoops are eyeing Porto defender Fernando Fonseca, who could be available for as little as £2 million.

Brendan Rodgers is eager to sign a right-back in the January transfer window with Swedish international Mikael Lustig out of contract in the summer.

Fonseca has largely featured for Porto’s B team while he’s also spent time on loan at Estoril Praia in the Portuguese second tier.

The 21-year-old was linked with a summer move to Juventus and has 18 months remaining on his current deal.
