Brazilian star Joao Gomez has revealed that Liverpool would be his dream to move to the Premier League.
The 21-year-old midfielder was linked with Manchester United earlier this summer after the Red Devils sent scouts to watch him play for Flamengo.
However, it was reported that the United representatives were more impressed by their player Andreas Pereira.
Now Gomez has confirmed that he would indeed prefer playing for Liverpool.
He was asked on a live broadcast if he wanted to move to the Premier League one day – and if so, what team he would want to join.
He replied: “Liverpool is a team I will play for.
“I have a great desire to play. Playing in the Champions League is my biggest dream and it’s my family’s dream. My biggest dream is in football.”
Despite being only 21, Gomez has already made 93 appearances for Flamengo.
He scored two goals with the Brazilian team and also contributed three assists.
Liverpool may be tempted to sign Gomez if the price is right.
