Andre Almeida has revealed that he dreams of a Premier League move but admitted that he would struggle to start for Liverpool.
“I always had the dream of going to the Premier League. I really like Liverpool and Manchester United for their history,” he said, cited in the Echo.
“I also like Real Madrid and Barcelona, but I prefer the Premier League. I would not have the ability to play all the starting games.”
Liverpool are in need of another right back after Nathaniel Clyne sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the summer, with Trent Alexander-Arnold the only natural right back in the senior squad.
Joe Gomez, James Milner and Fabinho are all capable of deputising at fullback but it would be preferable to have someone more comfortable in that position ready to stepping in should Trent Alexander-Arnold get injured or suspended.
Of course, Almeida is unlikely to be high up on Michael Edwards’ shopping list given his age but Jurgen Klopp needs to identify a suitable target ahead of the January transfer window because we saw the effect of what not having a creative backup to Trent can do.
Liverpool struggled to create chances last season when the young right-back was injured and to avoid a similar situation arising again, the Reds need to dip into the winter transfer market.
