Liverpool are willing to offer €30 million plus bonuses to complete signing

Brazilian outfit Fluminense are resisting Liverpool's efforts to sign 22-year-old Andre although the Reds can sign him in January.

Jurgen Klopp needs to add another midfielder to his ranks after signing Wataru Endo from Stuttgart last week although it's unclear at this stage who the German will be able to sign.

After missing out on Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia, Liverpool were forced to turn their attention to Endo but with just one more midfielder required, the midfield rebuild is close to being completed.

What's the transfer latest on Andre to Liverpool?

According to Globo Esporte, Liverpool are willing to offer Fluminense €30 million plus bonuses to sign the Brazilian this summer.

However, the Reds reportedly already have their answer. Andre is not for sale this summer and will only be allowed to leave the club in January after the conclusion of the Brazilian season in December.

The midfielder has a €40 million release clause but Fluminense will let him leave for €25 million in January if Liverpool include a 20% sell-on clause.

Would it make sense to wait for Andre until January?

While it wouldn't go down well with supporters after the way the January transfer window has panned out, waiting until the winter transfer window opens is an option.

Klopp's midfield options since Endo signed are as follows:

  • Alexis Mac Allister 
  • Dominik Szoboszlai
  • Thiago Alcantara
  • Wataru Endo
  • Harvey Elliott
  • Curtis Jones

Waiting until January to sign a fourth midfielder is a risky move and is not the ideal solution to Liverpool's transfer woes but with few high quality options available this late in the window, the Reds only have themselves to blame.

Selling Jordan Henderson and Fabinho was a wise move in my opinion but the response to losing two more experienced midfielders has been poor.

With less than two weeks to figure out a solution, the pressure is on the Merseyside outfit to ensure the season ahead isn't another that fails to deliver on its promise.
