According to reports, Manchester United target Andre has “agreed terms” with Liverpool and he’s keen to finalise a move to the Premier League giants.
Liverpool’s priority this summer has been to strengthen in midfield and they have spent over £100m to bring in Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Wataru Endo.
They are not stopping there, though. Jurgen Klopp’s side remain in the market for a new defensive midfielder following Fabinho’s exit.
The Premier League outfit are being heavily linked with Crystal Palace standout Cheick Doucoure but they also have Andre on their radar.
Liverpool have been consistently linked with the Fluminense midfielder over the past couple of months and it was claimed last week that the Reds have ‘revived’ their interest in the 22-year-old.
It has also been reported that Liverpool are willing to go as high as £25.8m to sign Andre, who is under contract until the end of 2026.
Brazilian journalist Emmanuel Luiz has now told RedmenTV that Man Utd have also been in for Andre, but the Red Devils have been informed that he has “personal terms agreed with Liverpool”.
“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,” Luiz told RedmenTV.
“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].”
Liverpool are also in the race to sign Fiorentina star Sofyan Amrabat but Man Utd are set to make a bid for him this week.
Klopp recently admitted to reporters that Liverpool “will keep looking” for new players before the transfer window closes.
“I sit here and I’m really happy with our transfer window in the moment,” Klopp told reporters.
“I know how football fans are and I know they would prefer a £110m player, or £150m or whatever your club can do. That is nice, but in the end the pitch is the same size. The player will not grow with the price he has, it’s rather the other way around.
“We will keep watching, we will keep looking, we will try with all we have to make the best decisions for this club.”
