Liverpool January transfer news from Newsnow Liverpool as report claims that the Reds could turn their attention to another Brazilian as alternative to Andre Trindade.
What’s Latest Liverpool January Transfer News?
Liverpool’s pursuit of a new central midfielder in the upcoming January transfer window has gained considerable momentum, driven by the urgent need for a defensive-minded player.
This need has arisen following the departures of both Fabinho and Jordan Henderson to Saudi Arabia during the summer. Jurgen Klopp, the club’s manager, is resolute in his quest to fill this void.
During the previous summer transfer window, Klopp found himself narrowly missing out on acquiring high-profile talents such as Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia. Consequently, he is now determined to attract a player with qualities reminiscent of the Chelsea duo.
In recent months, Liverpool have been constantly linked with a potential move for Brazilian midfielder Andre Trindade. Andre’s performances with Copa Libertadores champions Fluminense have earned him widespread recognition.
Who is Liverpool Targeting in January?
However, the increased competition from Arsenal and Fulham in their pursuit of Andre could prompt Liverpool to explore alternative options for the January transfer window.
One promising prospect on their radar is Gabriel Moscardo, an 18-year-old defensive midfielder hailing from Brazil and playing for Corinthians.
Moscardo burst into the scene towards the conclusion of the previous season, earning a reputation for his tenacious tackling abilities. His displays have not only caught the eye at the club level but have also led to his inclusion in Brazil’s U23 national team.
It’s notable that during the summer transfer window, Chelsea made two offers for Moscardo, with the highest bid reportedly reaching approximately £16 million.
Fabrizio Romano, a renowned transfer expert, suggests that his current market value is just over £25 million. TeamTalk has even heralded Moscardo as ‘the next Brazilian wonderkid,’ and multiple reports indicate that prominent clubs like Barcelona, Chelsea, and Newcastle are closely monitoring his progress.
Despite Moscardo’s aspirations to make a move to Europe, he maintains a deep connection with the club that provided him with his initial footballing opportunity. His strong bond with many of the coaches at Corinthians reflects his loyalty and gratitude to the team that nurtured his burgeoning talent.
