Gomes reveals ‘greatest desire’ to seal Liverpool move despite Man Utd interest

BRAZILIAN star Joao Gomes has revealed Liverpool would be his dream Premier League move.

The 21-year-old midfielder was linked with Manchester United earlier this summer after the Red Devils sent scouts to watch him play for Flamengo.

However, it was reported that United’s representatives were more impressed by their own player Andreas Pereira.

And now Gomes has confirmed he would actually prefer to play for their rivals Liverpool.

He was asked on a live stream whether he wants to move to the Premier League one day – and if so then what team would he want to join.

To which he replied: “Liverpool are a team I’d play for.

“I have the greatest desire to play. Playing in the Champions League is my biggest dream and that of my family. My biggest dream in football.”

Despite being just 21, Gomes has already made 93 appearances for Flamengo.

He has scored twice for the Brazilian outfit and also contributed three assists.

Liverpool could well be enticed into signing Gomes if the price is right.


His market value is thought to be around £32million.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are reportedly interested in bringing in a new central midfielder this summer if they can find the right fit.

They have been linked with the likes of Sporting Lisbon’s Matheus Nunes and Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham.
