Liverpool have made contact with Evanilson over a potential move, according to Netflu.
The Fluminense youngster’s contract expires in February 2020 and the Brazilian club could be keen to earn a fee for the midfielder.
Evanilson hasn’t yet become a regular for his team, but he shone on loan at Samorin last season, scoring three goals in six appearances.
He has also caught the eye for Fluminense’s Under-20 side this season, scoring more than anyone in the Brazilian youth league.
Brazilian journalist Robbie Blakeley also provided an update on the situation to Football Whispers, saying the 20-year-old could be signed on the cheap by Liverpool:
Fluminense are cash strapped so even if a bid was something like £4million, a relative pittance for a Premier League club, that converts into roughly 21 million reais, a fortune for the club in their current predicament.
Brazilian teams love selling to the Premier League, and China, but not just because of the money on offer. The exposure they receive benefits them in the long run.

Not a huge amount is known about Evanilson, in truth, but there is always something exotic about a Brazilian player joining the Reds.
It may be a move that ends up being unlikely, but considering the price Liverpool could sign him for, it would be worth the risk.
Don’t bank on it happening, though.
