Liverpool “expected to make offer in coming days”

Liverpool linked with move for South American rising star.

Liverpool are ushering in a new era under the guidance of a new manager and the prospect of signing players must align with the preferences of the new boss as they mark the departure from the Jurgen Klopp regime.

Simultaneously, the looming departures of seasoned players like Joel Matip and Thiago Alcantara, mainstays at Anfield for several years, add to the transitional phase.

There are speculations surrounding the potential exit of Egypt international Mohamed Salah, with reports suggesting that Saudi Arabia are preparing a substantial offer.

Additionally, the departure of Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk, who assumed the captaincy this season, is also on the horizon.

In response to these potential departures, Liverpool seem to be exploring options within the realm of Brazilian talent, capturing the attention of fans and pundits alike.

According to renowned Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola, “Liverpool have sent a representative over to speak to the family of Palmeiras player Luís Guilherme.

“The Reds are expected to make an offer in the coming days to get the deal done ahead of the summer transfer window.”

Guilherme earned a promotion to Palmeiras’ first team last season and has left an indelible mark with his noteworthy performances.

His impactful contributions in the midfield have also earned him a spot in the Brazil U-20 national team, showcasing his talent on an international stage.

The versatile attacking midfielder, adept at playing as a right winger or center forward, has showcased his skills in 32 appearances for the first team so far across all competitions.

The 18-year-old’s impressive speed has not gone unnoticed, leading to his inclusion in Brazil’s Under-20 team at the youthful age of 18.

Guilherme’s performances are capturing attention in his home country, with various top European clubs closely monitoring his progress as a promising player for the next generation.

Guilherme is a key player for the Brazilian champions Palmeiras, sharing the field with another emerging talent, Endrick, who has already secured a move to Real Madrid, underlining the growing recognition of these young wonders on the global football stage.

Liverpool are facing a need to bolster both the quality and depth of their attacking unit.

Currently, the wide areas are primarily covered by Mohamed Salah and Luis Dias as the only natural options.

However, the team has been compelled to deploy attacking midfielders and forwards as makeshift wingers to compensate for rotations and injuries.

To enhance their attacking options and maintain competitiveness across various competitions, Liverpool may consider reinforcing their squad with additional players specialised in wide positions in the summer.
