Local source claims Liverpool are interested in Brazilian and can put “good relationship” to work to sign 20-year-old

Liverpool are interested in signing Fluminense midfielder, Andre Trindade, and a local source says the two clubs share a “good relationship” – one the Reds can put to work to sign the player.

Udinese, Ajax and Barcelona are reportedly interested as well but it’s reported that Liverpool have been “closely watching the football of Fluminense ‘s midfielder.”

Local source Netflu state that while there is “nothing more” than interest and scouting, the Reds have a “good relationship” with Fluminense after the sale of Marcelo Pitaluga to the Anfield outfit.

Fabinho, who used to play for the club, is another of their alumni although the Reds didn’t buy him directly from the Brazilian outfit as he joined them via Real Madrid and AS Monaco.

Liverpool can put their strong working relationship to work to sign Andre if they want to add the 20-year-old to their ranks this summer although the likely outcome would be further tracking.

It’s rare for the Merseyside outfit to shop directly from Brazilian clubs.

Pitaluga is an exception to the rule as he is not a regular starter for Jurgen Klopp and has the opportunity to train and learn from Alisson Becker and Brazil icon Cláudio Taffarel.

The strong Brazilian history at Anfield featuring the likes of Fabinho, Alisson, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Leiva – is one that Liverpool could use to convince Andre to join the club.

Additionally, Klopp’s immaculate track record when developing young talent like 20-year-old Andre is sure to be a factor at play in potential negotiations.
