Video: Milan's Lucas Paqueta shows what Liverpool are missing with outrageous skill

Liverpool were reportedly keen to bring Brazilian starlet Lucas Paqueta to the Premier League before he joined Serie A powerhouses AC Milan.
Lucas Paqueta certainly has a lot to live up to at AC Milan.

After all, the San Siro has been the home of some of the greatest Brazilian footballers of their generation from Ronaldo to Ronaldinho, not to mention 2007 Ballon D’Or winner Kaka.

But, just three games into his Milan career, the £30 million man has certainly made an impression. And any watching Liverpool fans may be holding their heads in their hands
According to Tuttomercatoweb back in June, Liverpool had identified the Flamengo star as their top target after a deal to sign Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir fell through. But Paqueta always looked bound for Milan and finally sealed his move to the seven-time European Cup winners in January, as reported by ESPN .

And the 21-year-old is already showing Liverpool what they could have had with an outrageous piece of skill during Milan’s 2-0 win at Bologna on Monday.

Even the great Ronaldinho would have been proud of this.

Plenty of so-called Samba starlets have failed to live up to such exalted expectations as recent years as Milan, who once had a jet-heeled Alexandre Pato up top, could attest to.

So Paqueta has a long way to go before he reaches the very top of his game.
