Liverpool are interested in a move for Fluminense youngster Joao Pedro, despite the 17-year-old having already agreed a deal to join Watford following his 18th birthday.
Pedro is currently set to join his future teammates at Watford in January 2019, but a ‘disruption clause’ in the deal could allow Liverpool to hijack the Hornets’ move for the teenager.
Watford have agreed an initial €2.5million deal for the 17-year-old, and the fee could rise to €10million in add ons. However, according to the Mirror via Globo Esporte, Fluminense are said to have the option to cancel the deal due to the ‘disruption clause.’
The Brazilian side would have to pay Watford a fee of €20million to cancel the transfer, and would therefore demand a substantial transfer fee from Liverpool should they pursue a move for the teenager.
Pedro is attracting attention from a number of European sides after his run of seven goals in his first 10 appearances for Fluminense.
