Liverpool update on potential January signing given after reports of agreement made!
Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano has given Liverpool fans an update on the potential signing of Brazilian star Andre
LIVERPOOL were one of three Premier League clubs that sent scouts to admire Andre Trindade’s performance in Saturday’s Copa Libertadores final, ad Jurgen Klopp is looking to add some quality to his midfield.
A defensive midfielder is seen as the last piece of the puzzle to complete Jurgen Klopp’s rebuild of his engine room, and Andre is reportedly the man that Liverpool are very keen to sign in the January window.
Recent rumours of a ‘verbal agreement’ between Andre and his superiors at Fluminense to join Liverpool have circulated, although Fabrizio Romano has not backed up such claims.
Instead, in his latest CaughtOffside column the reporter explained the Reds’ major admiration for the player whose future will be decided soon.
He wrote: ‘Andre continues to impress at Fluminense as one of the most talented young players in Brazil, and we’ve heard a lot of rumours about LIVERPOOL, Arsenal and other clubs. Liverpool had a busy summer rebuilding their midfield and there’s been speculation that they could still look to make more signings in that position in January.
“Liverpool keep tracking and following Andre, that’s for sure, he’s always been appreciated by people at the club including Jurgen Klopp. Still, until now, there is no update as the Copa Libertadores final is crucial for Andre and he didn’t want any distractions. This will be something to watch for the next months.”
Fluminense president Mario Bittencourt has previously spoke of contact with Liverpool, when he told them: “My friend, I don’t sell a player now and I don’t deliver now. If you want to buy now to take in January, we can start talking, or if you want to wait until December and we talk in December.”
