Paris Saint-Germain is in the mix to land one of the pearls of Brazilian football for the next generation, as Palmeiras’ Endrick has several European clubs going after the teenager.
At 16 and depending on how these next three years go for him, the teenager has an outside shot at making the Brazil national team considering the potential that many see in Endrick.
Tottenham Hotspur and Brazil national team striker Richarlison compared him the starlet to former Inter Milan striker Adriano and believes that in two years when he’s legally able to head to Europe, he will do so.
“Trust me, I can say that Endrick is impressive, he’s very strong and talented,” Richarlison told reporters (h/t Fabrizio Romano).
“He reminds of Adriano. I watched him playing with Brasil and Palmeiras; I think in two years, he’ll arrive in Europe.”
Currently, PSG is reportedly the only club negotiating for the player, according to Endrick’s father. But obviously, that can change, but the price for the latest gem to come out of Brazil continues to increase, and Palmeiras isn’t allowing the teenager to leave for any price.
The Brazilian club reportedly wants a fixed transfer fee of €60 million to allow the young player to leave when he turns 18.
