Cruzeiro forward Kleber has claimed Liverpool are attempting to sign him.
The Brazilian striker ruled out moving to Anfield on Sunday, but on Monday performed a u-turn by insisting negotiations were taking place and, according to local reports, the Reds would pay £6million for his services.
When SporTV channel asked him whether he was going to play for the Merseysiders in the Premier League, Kleber said: "I don't know yet. They are talking."
The player, however, would like to stay in his homeland.
"Cruzeiro have been made an offer," he added. "I've always said I wanted to play in Brazil and make history here because I know it is possible.
"But I also know the team need to transfer players as they have commitments. We'll see."
The 25-year-old, nicknamed 'Gladiator', was signed by the Belo Horizonte side from Dynamo Kiev when the Ukrainians paid €5m plus Kleber for Guilherme.
"I want to stay, but if Cruzeiro can afford it," Kleber said.
