Moreira is also wanted by Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Bayern Munich as all the major European heavyweights have been keeping tabs on the progress of the Palmeiras striker.

Palmeiras is said to value the 15-year old for around £33.5million as they hope to hang on to the starlet who has scored a record total of 167 goals in 170 matches for Palmeiras’ youth.

According to current FIFA regulations, Endrick Felipe Moreira will be unable to complete a transfer outside of Brazil as he is yet to turn 18 but can sign a pre-contract agreement with any team of his choice.

Moreira is aiming to follow in the footsteps of fellow Brazilian Gabriel Jesus who was sold to Manchester City from Palmeiras back in 2016 for £29m.

Tuchel Speaks on Embattled Barca Winger Dembele

Earlier Sportsbrief reported Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is a huge admirer of Ousmane Dembele, despite the Frenchman’s current woes at Barcelona.

Barca are keen on selling the 24-year old winger in the January transfer window as the club remains adamant they are not willing to allow him to leave for free in the summer.

Contract talks between Dembele and Barcelona seemingly broke down and the Frenchman’s agent has now flown to London in a bid to secure a move for his client before the January window closes.
