Marcelo Pitaluga is set to join Liverpool after the Reds agreed a fee with Fluminense for the goalkeeper, according to reports in Brazil.
Liverpool have been tracking the 17-year-old for several months and have been locked in talks with Fluminense for three weeks, seeing one bid turned down for the stopper.
Brazilian outlet Globo Esporte claim Liverpool returned with an improved offer which has been accepted by Fluminense.
The Reds will pay £930,000 for Pitaluga and then another £930,000 if the goalkeeper triggers certain performance-related add-ons.
Fluminense have also managed to insert a 25 per cent sell-on clause should the Reds ever cash in on the promising youngster.
The teenager is now set to fly to Liverpool and put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the Premier League champions.
There is an option for a further two years in that contract and the deal has been made easier by the fact Pitaluga holds a German passport.
Fluminense were reluctant to sell Pitaluga, but Liverpool’s offer was too good to turn down.
Alisson is Liverpool’s firmly established No.1 goalkeeper at the club, with Adrian acting as the back-up to the Brazilian.
Liverpool have had a quiet transfer window so far and Pitaluga will be just the second signing for the Reds.
Kostas Tsimikas was signed for cover at left-back and the Greek could be the only major addition to Liverpool’s senior squad before the window closes in October.
