Liverpool interested in signing 17-year-old promising forward
Liverpool are top of the league and buying up all the fantastic teenagers in the world. Not only are Jürgen Klopp’s Merseyside club dominating today, but they’re also laying the foundations for dominating tomorrow. Reds are lining up a move for Pedro Brazao from OGC Nice.
U19 Portugal international is just 17-years-old. Pedro 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. Brazao has been called up to Nice’s first team and has appeared from the bench this campaign.
Luckily for the kid, Ligue 1 club are currently managed by the legendary Frenchman Patrick Vieira. The 17-year-old forward is being tracked by PSG and Bayern Munich as well as Sporting Lisbon in his native Portugal.
If Merseyside club sign Pedro Brazao it would be a continuation of the Reds pre-emptive Galacticos policy. Bavarians have also taken the same approach over the years. The one primary concern is that if we bought him, it could curtail the progress of other, more established youth footballers.
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 the Portuguese winger would be to dislodge one of these footballers.
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.
