It is explained that the West London club came close to signing Andre for just under £20m back in January but would now have to pay close to £25m to snap him up.

Signing players straight from South American football is always a big risk as there is no guarantee that they would adapt to the demands of the top European leagues.

English football can be a particularly unforgiving landing spot for young Brazilians, with very few managing to hit the ground running in the Premier League.
