In the midst of speculation, Joao Gomes has said he would like to play for Liverpool
Joao Gomes, a 21-year-old midfielder for Flamengo, said to ESPN Brazil—as reported by Liverpool Echo—that he would like to play for Liverpool, despite the Reds’ desire in acquiring the skilled footballer.
The talented young Brazilian player, whose performances have caused the world of football to sit up and take notice of him, has been linked with a move to Liverpool. He may be a good addition to the Reds in a spot where they are severely lacking in choices.
There is a perception that the midfield needs to be changed because it isn’t performing to the levels expected of a team of Liverpool’s caliber. In midfield, there is no superstar besides Thiago Alcantara.
Liverpool has been keeping an eye on Flamengo’s Joao Gomes in the transfer market.
Even after signing Arthur Melo on a loan from Juventus on the final day of the transfer window, there is a perception that the Brazilian is only a temporary solution. The former Barcelona player was brought in to help the Reds with their injury crisis.
There is a perception that, despite Thiago’s incredible form, Liverpool lacks firepower in the middle of the field since a number of midfielders at the club, like James Milner and Jordan Henderson, are on the wrong side of thirty.
According to rumors, Klopp is a major Gomes fan and would kill to have him at Anfield in January, or even next season if that doesn’t work out. The young Brazilian player appears to be a talent who would flourish in the German system.

Joao Gomes to Liverpool might be one of those transfers; it happens frequently when a club wants to recruit a certain player and the player wants to join exactly that club.
