  • Liverpool are closing in on the signing of 17-year-old keeper Marcelo Pitaluga from Fluminense, according to one of the largest Brazilian media outlets UOL.
  • The Reds are set to pay a fee in the region of €2m, with a 25 per cent sell-on clause expected to be included in the deal.
  • Pitaluga has a German passport which would allow him to join the Reds before turning 18.
  • He's yet to play a single game at the professional level, but Liverpool are understood to have been gathering scouting reports on him since last year.
  • Marcelo has already spoken to Alisson, too, thanks to the fact that the Reds' keeper's older brother Muriel is Fluminense's No.1.
  • Pitaluga was part of Brazil U17 side that won the World Cup last year and is clearly one to look out for in the future.
