Liverpool intend to submit bid in next few days for sensational 18-year-old

Liverpool intend to submit an offer to Palmeiras for 18-year-old sensation Luis Guilherme after holding talks with the player's family and club.

New reports suggest that the Reds are very serious about signing the teenager, who has been earning rave reviews in Brazil.

A recent claim from Nosso Palestra suggests that Liverpool made contact with Palmeiras recently. His contract reportedly contains a release clause valued at £44 million. Fabrizio Romano reported in November that his contract includes a €55 million (£47M).

Guilherme signed a new contract with Palmeiras in November 2023 which expires in 2026 - the longest the Brazilian club could sign him for due to restrictions imposed on contracts for U18s under Brazilian Law.

Now, journalist Jorge Nicola suggests that Liverpool are emboldened, after their approach to Palmeiras, to make an offer and intend to in the coming days.

According to Nicola, Liverpool have held talks with Palmeiras and the player's family over a move to take Guilherme to Anfield in the summer.

Given the Brazil U20 international's prodigious talent, it's no surprise Liverpool are interested. The Reds have an affinity for Brazilians with the likes of Alisson Becker and Roberto Firmino becoming legends at Anfield in recent years.

Why are Liverpool so seriously interested in signing Luis Guilherme?

Guilherme is a left-footed attacking midfielder blessed with unreal pace and the kind of technical trickery you might expect from a Brazilian attacker.

He excels at bursting past defenders - regardless of the part of the pitch he finds himself in. Guilherme is a dream for a manager like Xabi Alonso, who has made a name for himself in the Bundesliga as a coach who likes attacking football.

The 18-year-old will need to work on his attacking output if he's to take the Premier League by storm with zero goals in senior football and just two assists from an admittedly small sample size of 1,000 minutes.

As Liverpool's inspiring Carabao Cup triumph over Chelsea showed, with several Academy players on the pitch in extra time, the Reds put their faith in young talent.

Guilherme wouldn't be classed as an Academy star but he will be encouraged by Liverpool's commitment to trusting young stars when they need help.

Unlike at other big clubs in the Premier League, there is a genuine chance to make it into the first team at Anfield if you're good enough and show the right kind of mentality.
