While Liverpool’s interest in Andre Trindade is well advertised, there seems to be another Fluminense player that has caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp and co.
Calcio Mercato report that Liverpool has ‘asked for information’ on 16-year-old striker Matheus Reis.
Although he is yet to make his debut for Fluminense’s first team, head coach Fernando Diniz has named Reis on the bench for a few league games already.
The striker has made nine appearances for Brazil’s Under-17 squad at international level, and he helped his nation to win the 2023 South American Under-17 title in April.
It is believed that Reis was identified while the Reds were involved in negotiations for Andre.
Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City have also been credited with an interest in the teenager – suggesting that LFC will have to work hard if they are to bring Reis to Anfield.
Fluminense rate the forward very highly, and as a result have assigned a €50 million release clause to Reis – which on face value seems excessive.
Operating off the left-wing as a right-footer, the 16-year-old is what Jurgen Klopp prefers – an inverted winger that looks to score goals.
His playstyle has been likened to Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus.
With some speculation around Luis Diaz going on at the moment, perhaps Matheus Reis would be a suitable long-term replacement if the Colombian leaves.
A double swoop for both Andre and Reis would make FSG very popular amongst the fans, but whether that is realistic is another question entirely.
