Liverpool move onto other targets as Fulham begin talks for Andre

Liverpool have moved on to other targets following their interest in Andre, FootballTransfers has learned.

The Reds have been linked to signing the Brazilian international for an extended period but it’s our information that the club have informed his side that they are now looking at alternatives.

Fulham have been reported as the frontrunners but sources have told us that no proposals have been sent to Fluminense so far, withstanding the ones that were made over the summer window. The club are now looking for around €30 million - €40 milllion to sell the 22-year-old.

It’s been stressed, too, that the January window is still a couple of months away and it could be that more names come to the table for the youngster’s signature.

Fluminense secured victory against their Argentine rivals, Boca Juniors, in an extra-time showdown on Saturday night, in the view of several Premier League head scouts who were in attendance, as previously reported.

Andre said about the prospective of moving to the Premier League. “I follow the Premier League a lot. It’s a very competitive league that demands a lot from players. But today my dream is to live day by day here in Fluminense. I don’t know what will happen in the future. I have a long contract at Fluminense [which runs until the end of 2026] and I really like being here.

After being asked specifically about Liverpool and their manager Jurgen Klopp by AS before the match, he explained: “I follow overseas games a bit and I know that their work is exceptional.

“Without a doubt, he is a great coach - very intelligent and successful. But at the moment my coach is [Fernando] Diniz, a person I appreciate a lot off the field and who understands my style of play. I know how much I have grown in the field under his direction.”
