In a live [ ], Arcuri has revealed Reds manager Jurgen Klopp travelled to south America to speak to the talented teenager.
'When Rodrygo went to sign his first professional contract with Santos, aged 16, a Liverpool director called me saying that Klopp already knew the player, had seen the material, had already come to see Rodrygo personally.
'He had gone on YouTube, searched '"talents from Brazil", Rodrygo had appeared and he was very young. He came to Brazil, and liked him.
'They contacted me, the Liverpool director wanted him to be his first signing, Rodrygo. I went to England, sat in London, Liverpool have an office in London. I brought the proposal to Modesto (Roma Junior), then president of Santos.
'Modesto didn't accept. It turned out that Santos didn't want to sell Rodrygo and instead made the first professional contract. But it was Rodrygo's first official proposal, he was 16 and http://www.babylisssale.com/home.php?mod=space&uid=23499&do=profile&from=space it was Liverpool.'
