Liverpool Reportedly Make the “Next Kylian Mbappe” Their “Top Target” as They Plot Summer Swoop

For all the speculation surrounding Kylian Mbappe’s potential transfer to Liverpool, it appears unlikely that the Paris Saint-Germain star will join the club. However, Liverpool are reportedly keen on another promising talent who has drawn comparisons to Mbappe.

Football Insider reports that Liverpool’s top target for the summer is Luis Guilherme, a standout player from Palmeiras. The club reportedly considered making a formal approach for him in January, although ultimately, none was made.

Despite the lack of action in January, a reliable source suggests that Liverpool are planning a move for Guilherme during the upcoming off-season. The 18-year-old has also garnered interest from several other major European clubs.

According to report the Football Insider’s report, Guilherme has been dubbed the next Kylian Mbappe due to his impressive speed, with a recorded top speed of 36.4km/h during a match for Palmeiras’ under-17s in 2022.

Guilherme, still a teenager, has showcased versatility on the field, demonstrating proficiency in various positions such as a number 10, a second striker, or a right winger.

At just 18 years old, Guilherme is considered a highly promising talent in the football world. However, the possibility of a transfer to Liverpool during the summer transfer window may depend on the decisions of the club’s next sporting director and manager, as well as their assessment of his potential contribution to the team at Anfield.

In 2023, there were numerous reports linking the Reds with Andre Trindade, a talent based in Brazil. However, all the speculation led to no concrete outcome.

It remains to be seen if the pursuit of another promising prospect from Brazil will yield different results. Nonetheless, the priority for Liverpool FC is to fill the two significant vacancies within the team.
