Liverpool have received a fresh setback in their pursuit of a new midfielder this summer, as they have seen a $30 million bid turned down by Fluminense for Andre.
The Reds have been monitoring the midfielder throughout the summer, but their initial approach was rejected, according to ESPN.
Reds likely to return with another bid for Andre
It is believed that Fluminense are reluctant to sanction the sale, as they are still competing across numerous competitions. The Brazilian club is more likely to be open to a sale in January.
The Reds are desperately looking for reinforcements this summer after allowing Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to move to Saudi Arabia.
Liverpool had identified both Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia, but both midfielders rejected the Reds in favor of a move to Chelsea.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are likely to make a fresh approach for Andre over the coming days, but the Brazilian club are adamant that the 22-year-old will not be leaving this summer.
