Fulham closing in on signing Andre Trindade

Fulham and Fluminense have reportedly advanced the move for 22-year-old Brazilian international Andre Trindade, who will cost around €30 million.

According to a report by Brazilian outlet Trivela, Andre Trindade remains the subject of interest from Fulham. The Cottagers have advanced the move to sign the Brazilian international in the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, Fluminense will demand around €30 million to part ways with the young midfielder, with all three parties keen on seeing the move through.

The rise of Andre Trindade

Andre Trindade has established himself as one of the best young prospects in his homeland in the last few years. A native of Ibirataia, he has been with Fluminense for over a decade, having joined them in 2013 before progressing through the ranks at the club.

The Brazilian international broke into the first-team squad at Fluminense in the 2020 season and has gone from strength to strength in the last four years. The young midfielder has turned out nearly 200 times thus far for Tricolor Flu Fluzão, chipping in with four goals and four assists.

The 22-year-old made his senior bow for Brazil last year and has made five appearances for the Selecao. Meanwhile, Andre’s progress at Fluminense has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe, particularly from the Premier League. His next destination might be London, with Fulham vying for his signature in the summer transfer window.

London calling?

Fulham’s interest in Andre Trindade is understandable. The Cottagers have been scouring the market for a holding midfielder heading into the summer transfer window amid the uncertainties surrounding the long-term future of Joao Palhinha. The Portuguese international has joined Bayern Munich this week, leaving the gaping hole in the Fulham midfield.

The Fluminense midfielder has thus emerged as a viable target for Fulham, with the West London club advancing the move to sign him. All three parties are keen on sealing the deal in the summer transfer window, with the Brazilian club demanding around €30 million to part ways with him in the summer transfer window.

The Cottagers have already failed with a bid worth €25 million to secure Andre’s services. Raising the proposal to €30 million should not be an issue for Fulham after cashing in on Palhinha, and it will be interesting to see if the 22-year-old Brazilian international arrives at Craven Cottage in the coming weeks.
