Liverpool and Andre Trindade. These two entities have been linked together since the last summer. The Brazilian was the main target for the Reds in the summer transfer window. Liverpool really wanted to fill in the gap created by Jordan Henderson and Fabinho. However things didn’t worked out as the youngster’s parent club Fluminense wanted to keep him for the Copa Libretadores final. This would definitely take time. Moreover, this time has increased competition for the player’s signing. Arsenal and Fulham have already been monitoring Andre’s situation. Furthermore, Manchester United are the new arrivals in this race. As per the reports, the Red Devils have even sent representatives to Brazil in order to talk with the player’s representatives. There were rumors that due to all this scenario, Liverpool may divert their attention from Andre. However, recent reports confirm the fact about Liverpool still pursuing Andre Trindade.
Moreover, the Reds continued intrest in the player is definitely gonna increase his price tag above the initial £30 million. In addition to that, we could be witnessing further competition for Andre from other European leagues as well in the coming time.
Why are Liverpool still pursuing Andre?
As per Anfieldcentral, Liverpool have reportedly spent £146 million in total this summer in their midfield. They’ve signed players like Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and world cup winner Alexis Mac Allister. However, the Reds haven’t been able to get a perfect defensive midfielder yet. That’s why they’re going for Andre Trindade.
Recently it was heard that Liverpool are diverting their attention from Andre to their U21 number 6 Tyler Morton. However, it seems that the Reds are not giving up on the Brazilian anytime soon. Moreover, the young age of the Brazilian is the main advantage as he can be groomed by the club of his choice so that he can adapt to that particular club’s playing style.
