Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have officially joined the competition alongside Liverpool and Arsenal in the pursuit of signing Andre, according to sources.
The midfielder played a pivotal role as Fluminense secured their first-ever Copa Libertadores title, earning acclaim for his standout performance in the challenging final against Boca Juniors at the Maracana. Fluminense clinched the victory with an extra-time goal from John Kennedy.
Andre’s consistent impressive form has generated speculation about a potential departure from his childhood club in recent months. Earlier reports indicated interest from both Liverpool and Fulham in acquiring the midfielder during the summer. However, Fluminense president Mario Bittencourt disclosed that Liverpool’s bid was unsuccessful, as the player expressed a desire to remain until the conclusion of the Brazilian season.

With the Brazilian domestic season nearing its end, with five games remaining for Flu, sources have now confirmed that the club anticipates Andre’s move to Europe during the upcoming January transfer window. Fluminense is reportedly open to accepting an offer in the vicinity of £30 million for his services.
As Andre contemplates his next move, the 22-year-old is presented with a multitude of options. Despite Liverpool’s summer signings of Alexis Mac Allister, Wataru Endo, Dominik Soboszlai, and Ryan Gravenberch, sources indicate that the club maintains an interest in securing Andre’s services as the January transfer window approaches.
In addition to Liverpool, it has been recently confirmed by sources that Arsenal’s sporting director, Edu, personally scouted the midfielder during a recent trip to Brazil. The Gunners are eager to bolster their midfield options in light of Thomas Partey’s recent injury setback.
According to information obtained, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, both prominent Premier League clubs, have also joined the race to secure the talented Brazilian. However, any potential moves from these clubs are contingent on player sales.
Tottenham is keen on acquiring Andre but is reportedly waiting to finalize the sale of Pierre-Emile Højbjerg first. The Danish international has attracted interest from Juventus, with sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli assessing the player’s availability during a recent visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Meanwhile, Manchester United’s pursuit of Andre hinges on the future of Casemiro. The experienced midfielder has been linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League in 2024, prompting the Red Devils to compile a list of potential replacements, with Andre featuring prominently among the mentioned names.
