    Liverpool sign Brazilian goalkeeper

    Liverpool have successfully signed Brazilian goalkeeper Marcelo Pitaluga on a permanent deal from Fluminese

    Lfc rumour

    The 17-year-old was scouted with the help of Alisson Becker's brother Muriel while the pair were at Fluminense.

    The teenager, who was part of the Brazil squad which won the FIFA U17 World Cup on home soil last November, has started training at Melwood, where he will be based with the first-team group, and will play for the club's academy teams.

    "I asked Ali to speak to his brother to see how it goes and how he is doing," goalkeeping coach John Achterberg told liverpoolfc.com .

    "Ali spoke to his brother and Ali went training there (during the club's Premier League break in February).

    "We saw a little bit from the training and the games he was playing for the reserves in Brazil.

    "We saw a little bit from the training and the games he was playing for the reserves in Brazil.

    "He was already 16 playing in the reserve team there so you also think, 'they trust him to play already in the reserves at 16'.

    "Now he is here, we have to improve [him]. He is still young, there is no pressure because there is still a long road and we don't want to create any pressure for him because there is still work to do."

    Commendations are dwarfed talking about Liverpool signing a 17-year-old, mostly at moment when the club appears to deserves a senior class goalkeeper to provide save hands at hold for Alisson.

    But !!, a good signing it is.

    In the perspective of Adrian pulling shady performances Pitaluga could be allowed to make his senior debut soon, never can tell could just be the next big glove behind Ali , he turns 18 in December.
