Andre Trindade has reportedly teased that he wants to join Liverpool, with the midfielder rejecting an approach from Manchester United.
The Brazilian youngster, who Liverpool are believed to have made a €25m (£21m) offer for this summer, has been wanted by the Premier League side for some time, with Andre now keen on a move.
However, a deal with Fluminense is proving hard to strike, with the Brazilian giants eager to keep hold of Andre for as long as possible despite interest from Liverpool.
Indeed, a move could soon happen, and Luiz has now said that the midfielder is keen to match the switch. The journalist said: “Andre wants the Liverpool move.

“Manchester United was in talks with the player’s camp, they said look, in England, we agreed with Liverpool. I love Andre, but I never trust a player’s word, but in this case I think it’s a very strong situation.”
Liverpool need to push for Andre before the window shuts
Andre is quickly emerging as a prime candidate for Liverpool’s final midfield signing of the window, and if the Reds want to bring the Brazilian to Merseyside, they’ll have to act now to make a deal possible.
Fluminense’s stance on not selling Andre as long as they’re in the Copa Libertadores is a brave one, yet it’s something Liverpool can break down with a financially-tempting offer.
With Andre already sold on a move to Liverpool, all it will take is a bid from the Reds to shatter Fluminense’s resolve, something that is more than possible in the coming days.
