The departure of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho was not expected at the end of last season. Despite the acquisition of Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo, the number and experience of the midfielders are not top class, and the team is looking to further strengthen its midfield.
Liverpool has been eyeing Brazilian midfielder Andre, who has been very successful at Fluminense, and presented an offer for €30 million. However, Fluminense, who do not want to let go of the 22-year-old midfielder until the end of the season, are refusing to budge on any offer.
The transfer saga surrounding the player has been a dark cloud over the club. The midfielder, who has made 148 appearances for the Brazilian club and made his long-awaited debut for the national team in June 2023, is happy to hear of the interest in him, but stresses that he is focused on his current club.
“Of course it’s normal for offers to come in. Even more so with the team doing well, progressing through the Conmebol Libertadores, at the top of the Brasileirão. Not just for me, but for others too. I’m happy for the offers that come in, but my head is 100% focused on Fluminense today.”Globo Esporte
He will be available next winter, but there is no guarantee that Liverpool will try to acquire him again. 22 years old and just starting to develop his game, it is highly likely that clubs in the Premier League, La Liga, and other top leagues will try to sign him.
Will the Brazilian midfielder, who is known for his midfield fight, ball-winning ability, and pressing, ever make his mark on the European stage?
