Liverpool are said to be hot on the trail of Fluminense starlet Evanilson.
According to a report from Netflu, Reds officials have made contact with representatives of the 20-year-old, who has only recently been promoted to the first-team.
Contact, Netflu state, is yet to be made with Fluminense.
Enticingly, the South American forward’s contract actually expires in February 2020, which could mean the possibility of a free transfer for one lucky suitor.
Apparently Evanilson feels let down by the club’s lack of movement to get him an extension.
The Brazilian season ends on Sunday, meaning there is one last chance for Evanilson to add to his solitary first-team appearance for the club.
TBR’s view – Liverpool to land a gem?
Liverpool could be set to add another bright young prospect to their academy.
The European champions are a huge lure and will hope to be to convince Evanilson that his immediate future lies out of Brazil.
It certainly sounds like there could be a good chance of getting him if Fluminense really have dawdled proposing an extension.
