Liverpool are keen on bringing Fluminense midfielder André Trindade to Anfield this summer, with Reds president Mario Bittencourt confirming that the Premier League club have registered an interest in the Brazilian following the departures of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

Speaking to ESPN, via O Globo, Bittencourt revealed that Liverpool CEO Billy Hogan had made contact regarding a deal for the player but that there was no need to worry about the deal because everything was under control. He said:

According to ESPN, Liverpool have made a €30 million (£25m) offer for Brazilian winger Richarlison after missing out on both Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia. The club now appears willing to part ways with the player if the deal arrives once the season finishes at the end of the calendar year.

“And I replied to him, ‘My friend, I don’t sell players now and I don’t deliver now. If you want to buy now to take in January we can start talking, or if you want to wait until December and we talk in December.’ The chief executive of Liverpool contacted me directly and I replied to him that if he wanted to buy now and take the player in January then we could start talking or if he wanted us to wait until December then we could talk about that.”
