Liverpool lost a number of midfielders between the end of last season and this summer’s transfer window. They have acquired Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Wataru Endo in quick succession, but are now looking to add further reinforcements.
Liverpool, who have recently been in the hunt for Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, are also in talks with Fluminense’s Brazilian midfielder Andre as a top candidate.
Manchester United have also made contact with the 22-year-old midfielder, who is under contract with Fluminense until 2026, but he has already agreed to a personal contract with Liverpool and is pushing his club to make the move happen, according to Emmanuel Luiz, a Brazilian journalist.
“Manchester United went to Andre’s camp to talk to them about a possible negotiation. What they said [was] the player has personal terms agreed with Liverpool, personal already agreed. That’s done,”
“The player said to Fluminense, the situation today – I called some guys close to Andre – and they said to me, Andre said to Fluminense ‘I want to go to Liverpool, I want to go, I have personal terms agreed’. That’s fine but what Fluminense said [was] we are not going to say right now because of the Copa Libertadores [which does not end until November] that we already know.”
“So Andre said ‘I’m going to talk to them [Liverpool].”RedmenTV
He is a midfielder who is willing to play hard in the midfield and can win the ball away from his opponents. He can play in various positions in the midfield with his Brazilian technique.
Although he has little experience in Europe or on the international stage, he is highly regarded for his potential.
With the transfer deadline approaching, Liverpool has begun to move rapidly in its midfield reinforcement strategy. Fluminense is said to be unlikely to allow him to leave this summer, but what will happen in the next two weeks?
