The Brazilian is among a host of players emerging from the South American country right now who are hoping to seal moves to big European clubs.
According to Football Transfers, Liverpool are among the teams keen on Andre, who the Brazilian outfit value at around the £25m mark.
And building on that story today, UOL has now claimed that Fluminese have got super agent, Jorge Mendes, involved in trying to sort out a move to England.
It’s claimed in UOL that Mendes is a close friend of Carlos Leite, who is also looking to drive the move for Andre.

Liverpool, as we know, are looking for new midfielders after losing Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.
Romeo Lavia remains the top target for now but it looks like Andre could be considered alongside the Southampton man.
Whether or not Jurgen Klopp would see Andre as being ready for the Premier League straight away, remains to be seen.
However, with so many Brazilians enjoying success in England recently, Andre is a player who has clearly perked the interest of Klopp and more.
RTK’s View: Andre is one to watch for Premier League clubs
Clubs will have eyes on the likes of Gabi Martinelli and more and see how well some Brazilians have done in England.
Over the years, we’ve seen plenty do the business. Oscar and Willian shone for Chelsea a while back, while recently the likes of Ederson, Alisson and of course, Fabinho, have done brilliantly well.
Andre, then could well be the next Brazilian to shine in England. Liverpool, then, are right to be in the mix for this one.
