Liverpool have reportedly been keeping a close eye on Palmeiras wonderkid Luis Guilherme while out scouting Andre in Brazil.
The 17-year-old midfielder is among the highest-rated young players in the world and has caught the eye of many top European clubs.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Chelsea have been following his progress for a “long time”. Guilherme recently signed a new contract with Palmeiras until 2026 which includes a £48m release clause.
The young star made his professional debut in April, two months after his 17th birthday, coming on as a substitute in a 4–2 home win over Tombense. Since then, he has appeared 26 times in all competitions for the Serie A side.
Liverpool will be hoping they can complete a double swoop for Guilherme and Andre. The latter is thought to be the Reds’ top January transfer target.
According to the Sun, the Fluminense midfielder has already agreed personal terms over a move to Liverpool. Liverpool are yet to agree a deal with Fluminense, though, and there is still work to be done to see off stiff competition from other potential suitors.
Arsenal and Chelsea have also been linked with the player. Regardless of where he goes, it seems Andre will fulfil his dream of playing for a major European side. He had the opportunity to move away from Fluminese midway through the 2023 Serie A season but opted to stay in order to steer his team to glory in the upcoming Copa Libertadores final against Boca Juniors.
