According to reports in Brazil, Liziero is, along with Antony, Igor Gomes and Everton Cebolinha, one of the players the Barça delegation in the South American country at the moment are most interested in. 

Liziero, per 'Globoesporte', is one of the emerging stars in Brazil and one of the players who has provoked the most interest from the Catalans. 

At the end of last season, he travelled to Italy to finalise a European passport and took advantage of his trip to visit Barcelona. 

With a European passport, the door is open to a number of European clubs as he wouldn't occupy a non-EU place. He visited Malcom when he was in Barcelona.

The midfielder, 20, has a contract with Sao Paulo until 2023. The Brazilian club own 100 percent of his contract and he has a release clause of 50 million euros. He made his debut in 2018 for the first time. 

For now, he's just being followed by Barcelona. The Spanish champions don't seem to have taken anything further yet.
