I think he’d be the right profile of midfielder that we need.

He was heavily linked with Liverpool all summer. Feels like out name is being used to speed up a Liverpool move

Jac tabolt is a known bullshitter. He may even be banned from the transfer tweets thread.

Another one that's going to end up at City/Liverpool/Brighton and we'll have threads with tweets from November 2023 showing we were interested in this kid but refused to make a move.

Yet another one that won't ever happen, got Portuguese league written all over this one.

He’s incredibly highly rated amongst Brazilian fans. He doesn’t look amazing to me, if I’m being honest, but I’m wrong about players a lot. I much prefer Danilo from Forest but he’d cost a fortune.

Buying directly from Brazil is a risk but one historically worth taking. There’s a few very interesting prospects atm - Beraldo, Luis Guilherme, Lorran, Gabriel Mec and maybe most promising is Estevao who’s being hyped up to comparable levels to Endrick.

In terms of a DM, I appreciate the creative option that Andre seems to represent. I mentioned that I prefer Danilo but he appears more of a destroyer as a DM. I get why we want more of a creative player but we seem to lack some physicality and Andre, albeit stocky, doesn’t really add to that. Zubimendi of Sociedad might be a good mix of passing ability and physical strength so he would be ideal but allegedly he has no interest in leaving his hometown club Sociedad (who are doing really well this year).

Yeah, we are heading for a regime change but we are making offers on players... This journo seems to be a BS merchant.

He'll probably end up getting snapped up by Liverpool like Gakpo was this time last year.

1 of the comments there say that this source is tier 1 for the club he's playing for(Fluminense)

We have no money to spend, takeover is in-progress, it'll take time for Ratcliffe to get his people in. I don't think we'll be signing anyone this Jan bar some freak injury crisis / Weghorst type situation.

Sounds like the agent is using our name to drum up interest.

What sort of player he is? The clips are all over the place in terms of clarity, the standard and his quality. Knowing us it’ll be an all action midfielder with a lack of genuine technical class.

I just watched 8 mins of his footage, can't remember what he does, so I guess he is not particularly impressive to me. Maybe its just that his style isn't flashy and he doesn't seem to stand out in anything particular.

His Fbref profile is highly similar to Armabat for me. Tones of accurate short passes but nothing else.

Some slight shades of Iniesta in the way he can manipulate the ball and get past people.

Whether he can do that consistently rather than just in highlight compilations is of course a different matter, but cool to see.

I’ve never seen him play, but from clips looks a bit like Bruno G?

He was very good in the chaos that was the Libertadores final. Plays on the turn, great dribbler, very agile, and very good at evading pressure. If we're looking for a first phase midfielder, it would be weird if his name hadn't cropped up.

To the bolded, I really don't think that would be necessary at this point. To the rest, you're probably right, sadly.

Yep agreed, said the same myself in a similar thread. That’s why im not getting excited at the thought of any signings

Obviously difficult to tell by compilations. But seems to have limited range of passing and the dribbling is too loose.

Very nice looking fbref profile (deep touches, constant involvement, pass success and progression, high number of carries and progression through that) and at 22 years old, is the perfect age profile. Swapping Varane and Case for Andre and Todibo would be a very smart long term move, considering the time it'll take for us to actually be good.

How can there be a transfer speculation thread without any YouTube videos? The modern Muppet just isn’t at the standard of the old guard.

I think, his name is around since quite some time. Pretty sure he was mentioned on Tifo IR-L videos about us as well. He isn't a DM though he was described as combatitive and likes to be stuck in but certainly not like Casemiro. On the ball he was described as very modern, quick feet, very good passing, good passing range. Back then, he was talked about with a 25 million price tag.

I'd be all in for that. But the price is important given that he is pretty close to Mainoo skillset wise. And while it certainly is good to have players who can replace each other I think adding a more physical option would be more important.

Yet another one that won't ever happen, got Portuguese league written all over this one.

Yeah, just try to be safe and offer 400-500 Million for Bellingham and Camavinga instead. Way safer. What could go wrong.
