Throughout the summer, Liverpool has been working on revamping its midfielders. Recently, Liverpool has begun to rejuvenate its forward line, and the generational change in the front line and midfield is gradually progressing.
The next point of reinforcement is expected to be the final line, with a particular interest in left-handed center backs.
However, the possibility of further strengthening the midfield is also on the rise, and many midfielders from Europe and South America are being mentioned, including England midfielder Kalvin Phillips, who has been under-used at Manchester City.
The most likely target is Fluminense’s Brazilian midfielder Andre, whom the club has tried to acquire in the past during this summer’s transfer window.
It was thought that Liverpool would try to acquire him this winter, but Graeme Bailey, an English journalist, reported that Liverpool is now on the back foot as several clubs, including Arsenal, are in the battle for him.
“Liverpool are still interested, but I think they may be getting scared away by the amount of teams that are in for him now.”
“Because Liverpool were in for him when there wasn’t much interest, he was a bit under the radar.”
“But now Arsenal have joined the hunt, we know Edu [Gaspar] has watched him personally.”Talking Transfers
The 22-year-old midfielder was a regular defensive midfielder for Fluminense, who won the Copa Libertadores in spectacular fashion. Because it was during the same tournament, Liverpool had rejected an offer this summer.
However, his club is open to his leaving this winter and is expected to encourage him to challenge in Europe. In addition to Liverpool and Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur are also said to be interested, which could lead to a competition among Premier League clubs.
So, where will the ever-improving Brazilian midfielder end up playing for his new club?
