Liverpool are reportedly in talks to sign teenage Fluminense goalkeeper Marcelo Pitaluga, with the youngsters family pushing for a move to England.
Reports in Brazil claim that the Reds have made an approach for Pitaluga, 17, and that the ball is now in their court.
Local outlet Globo Esporte do not specify how much the Premier League champions have offered for the Brazil youth international.
But it’s claimed that Pitaluga’s family are pushing the club to accept the deal so they can all move to England.
It’s understood that due to Pitaluga’s European passport, a move should be relatively easy to push through.
To sweeten the deal, Liverpool have offered them a house to live in, as well as a job for his father.
Fluminense are keen to hang on to Pitaluga due to his huge potential, but may be forced to sell due to their current financial situation.
Liverpool and Fluminense have a good relationship due to current number 1 Alisson’s history with the club.
The Brazilian’s brother, Muriel, is the club’s current goalkeeper, and trained with them during the winter break.
Alisson, his brother, and Pitaluga took a picture together during the former's time in South America in February, in which the youngster thanked Alisson for his help on a post on Instagram.
The snap of the trio was captioned: “Week of much learning with @alissonbecker!”

Alisson recently opened up about his huge desire to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with Brazil.
He said on Brazilian TV show Bola da Vez: “I dream of winning the World Cup, of being there (Qatar) in 2022. But we have the Copa America (in 2021) ahead and the (South American World Cup) qualifiers.
