Liverpool are top of the league and buying up all the exciting youngsters in the world. Not only are Jürgen’s Reds dominating today, but they’re also laying the foundations for dominating tomorrow. According to RMC Sport Liverpool are lining up a move for Pedro Brazao from OGC Nice.
Brazao is just 17-years-old. The Portuguese youngster 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.
The starlet has been called up to Nice’s first-team and has appeared from the bench this campaign.
Luckily for the wonderkid, Nice are currently managed by the legendary French defensive midfielder Patrick Vieira.
According to a report by The Mail, Brazao is being tracked by Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich as well as Sporting Lisbon in his native Portugal.
If the Merseyside Reds sign Pedro Brazao, it would be a continuation of the club’s pre-emptive Galacticos policy.
Bayern Munich have also taken a similar way over the years. Who can forget their bizarre buying of Tranmere Rovers young prospect Dale Jennings?
The one primary concern is that if we bought him, it could curtail the development of other, more proved youth players.
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 frequently see Luis Longstaff. To bring in Brazao would be to dislodge one of these players.
Though, we must always trust Neil Critchley, Michael Edwards and Vitor Matos. 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.
