Liverpool set to make second summer transfer signing as they agree £1.8m deal for Fluminense goalkeeper Marcelo Pitaluga

PREMIER LEAGUE champions Liverpool are set to make their second summer transfer signing of the season.

The Reds have reportedly agreed a £1.8million deal for Fluminense goalkeeper Marcelo Pitaluga, according to reports in Brazil.

Liverpool have reportedly agreed a £1.8m deal for Marcelo Pitaluga

Jurgen Klopp’s men are said to have been monitoring the 17-year-old for several months, and have been in talks with the Brazilian club for three weeks – already having one bid turned down.

But Brazilian news outlet Globo Esporte say that Liverpool have made a second bid of £930,000 for the teenager, with another £930,000 due IF Pitaluga triggers performance-related add-ons.

Fluminense were reluctant to sell Pitaluga, but the new offer was too good to refuse.

 

The shotstopper is now set to fly to Liverpool and put pen to paper on a three-year contract.

There’s also an option for a further two years, should Pitaluga be a success at Anfield.

The deal was pushed through more smoothly, without the need for work permits, because the Brazilian holds a German passport.

So far, Liverpool have been quiet in the transfer market.

Earlier in the window, they added Greek international Kostas Tsimikas for a reported fee of £12million.
