Liverpool could agree first January transfer well before winter window after Pete O’Rourke update

Pete O’Rourke reported for Football Insider that the Reds are ‘in pole position to agree a deal’ for the Brazilian holding midfielder, despite competition for the player’s signature.

“They are in pole position to agree a deal for Andre although they do face competition from other leading clubs,” the journalist wrote. “Liverpool have already submitted a big offer but Fluminese didn’t want to sell in the summer. This will heat up again soon.”

The Merseysiders are thought to be keeping an eye out for a No.6 they can develop amid concerns over the long-term future of the role.

Alexis Mac Allister, it’s worth emphasising, has been doing a terrific job regardless of the fact he’s currently being played out of position by Jurgen Klopp.

The Argentinian could, perhaps, be faulted for a turnover with disastrous consequences in the 2-2 draw with Brighton (if one is first willing to turn a blind eye to Virgil van Dijk’s ill-advised pass), though has otherwise utilised his abilities to our benefit this term.

At some point, we expect Wataru Endo to enter the fray on a more regular basis, though it certainly couldn’t hurt to have two natural holding midfielders competing for a first-XI spot going into the remainder of the campaign beyond the winter window.
