Liverpool remains confident about securing the services of Fluminense midfielder Andre, despite fresh interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal, according to sources.
The Reds were frontrunners in the pursuit of the 22-year-old Brazilian during the summer transfer window. However, Fluminense rejected multiple bids from Liverpool as they aimed to keep hold of Andre until January, with hopes of winning their first-ever Copa Libertadores title.
Recent reports indicate that Arsenal has entered the race for Andre’s signature, which has raised concerns among Liverpool fans. Nevertheless, sources close to the club have revealed that Liverpool remains optimistic about persuading the midfielder to choose Anfield as his next destination.
Despite a considerable Brazilian presence at Arsenal, including players like Gabriel, Gabriel Martinelli, and Gabriel Jesus, as well as sporting director Edu, Liverpool believes they can secure Andre’s services.
This season, Andre has made 49 club appearances across all competitions, finding the net once. The Brazilian domestic season is set to continue until December, and Fluminense has reached the final of the Copa Libertadores, where they will face Boca Juniors on November 4 in Brazil with the coveted trophy up for grabs.
Andre, who is under contract with Fluminense until December 2026, has accumulated a total of 157 appearances for his boyhood club since making his professional debut in September 2020. He has also earned two caps for the Brazilian national team, with his most recent appearance coming in a 1-1 draw against Venezuela in October.
