Brazilian outlet UOL reports today on the race for Fluminense youngster Kayky, who’s being followed by several European sides.
They name the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Shakhtar Donetsk in the competition for the 17-year-old, and for now, it seems the Ukrainian side is in the lead.
It’s said the club sent a scout to Brazil a couple of weeks ago, and as the talks go on, there should be an offer in the coming days, with a deal similar to the one which took João Pedro to Watford.
Regarding the Premier League sides, Manchester City are said to be outsiders, with smaller chances of getting the signing.
Meanwhile, Liverpool contacted Fluminense to get more information on the youngster, as the clubs have ‘good relationship’. The Reds haven’t yet taken things further.
UOL highlights the fact that Kayky is seen as a big talent not only by Fluminense, but by the international media as well. They point out the likes of AS and The Guardian already mentioned his potential, and Football Talent Scouts voted as the best player of his age level.
Since Kayky only turns 18 in June, there’s still a while until he’d be able to move to Europe. It’s also not clear if the Liverpool or Manchester City would have problems getting him a work permit.
