Fluminese star Andre could be West Ham United bound, amidst strong links with a move to Liverpool.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is very keen to bring the Brazilian starlet to Anfield this summer, and the German has already made a £26 million bid for him according to ESPN.
That said, even if we do manage to sign Andre, he won’t be able to join us for a few months yet…
West Ham have just made official bid for midfielder Klopp wants at Liverpool – Andre
The talented 22-year-old Fluminese midfield star is firmly on the radar of the Hammers this summer it seems.
Brazilian football journalist Lucas Pedrosa claims that West Ham have made a bid for Andre – one that matches the one made by Liverpool – but we will have to wait until January (when the Brazilian season has finished) before we can sign him:
Andre is an incredibly exciting young player, and if West Ham manage to sign him it would be a huge statement.
He is a defensive midfielder by trade but can operate as an orthodox central midfielder or even in more of an attacking role.
He has power, energy and athleticism in abundance and possesses exceptional technical ability. The South American seems to be perfectly suited to the Premier League as well, what with his tenacious and aggressive playing style.
If West Ham beat Liverpool in the race for his signature it will be a truly massive statement from the club.
