Report: Liverpool chasing 17-year-old wonderkid Pedro Brazao

The Reds are top of the league and buying up all the impressive youngsters in the world. Not only are Jürgen’s Reds dominating today, they’re laying the foundations for dominating tomorrow. According to RMC Sport (h/t Daily Mail) Liverpool are lining up a move for Pedro Brazao from OGC Nice.

Brazao is just 17-years-old. The Portuguese starlet plays as a midfielder for French side OGC Nice. He mostly plays on the left wing but he is equally adept as a centre midfielder or right winger.

The youngster has been called up to Nice’s first team and has appeared from the bench this season.

Luckily for the kid, Nice are currently managed by the legendary Frenchman Patrick Vieira.

According to a report by The Mail, Brazao is being tracked by PSG and Bayern Munich as well as Sporting Lisbon in his native Portugal.

What RTK has to say

If Liverpool sign Pedro Brazao it would be a continuation of the club’s pre-emptive Galacticos policy.

Bayern have also taken a similar approach over the years. Who can forget their bizarre buying of Tranmere Rovers youngster Dale Jennings?

The one major concern is that if we bought him it could curtail the progress of other, more established youth players.

For instance we already have Harvey Elliott starting every game in our U23s and U19s sides (dependent on the competition). Whereas on the opposite flank we often see Luis Longstaff. To bring in Brazao would be to dislodge one of these players.

However, we must always trust Vitor Matos, Michael Edwards and Neil Critchley. If the lad is mustard and we want him we will get him, how long it would be until we saw him in the first team is anybody’s guess.
