Liverpool ask for information about Brazilian starlet compared to Kaka

    Date published: Tuesday 23rd June 2020 1:09

    Liverpool are interested in Sao Paulo starlet Igor Gomes and have made contact with his agent, according to claims in Brazil.

    The Reds currently have a Brazilian spine running through their team, with goalkeeper Alisson Becker, midfielder Fabinho and forward Roberto Firmino.

    Now, they could be looking to add to their South American contingent with one for the future. According to Esporte Interativo (via Sport Witness), Liverpool are one of several sides interested in bringing Igor Gomes to Europe.

    Gomes made his senior debut for Sao Paulo in 2018 and began playing more regularly the year after. In the process, he earned comparisons to former Real Madrid and AC Milan star Kaka.

    Yahoo claim that Ajax are preparing an offer for the midfielder, which is expected to eclipse the €22m package they paid the same club for Antony in February.

    However, Esporte Interativo mention Liverpool as contenders for his signature. The Reds are reportedly in touch with Gomes’ agent, to check on his availability.

    The Brazil Under-23 international is under contract until 2023. Real Madrid are also interested in signing him, but are yet to make a bid.


    Liverpool have had several successful Brazilian players over the years. Even before the current squad, the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Leiva impressed at Anfield.

    Gomes is untested in Europe, so it remains to be seen how much of an impact he would be able to make.

    Despite that, Gomes could qualify for a Portuguese passport. Therefore, he may not take up an EU spot in whichever squad he joins, giving the buying club more flexibility.

    However, rumours of a €50m release clause suggest that the 21-year-old will not move cheaply.

    Barcelona and Sevilla are also interested in taking him to La Liga.
