The Brazilian forward continues to be heavily linked with a move to Europe and Gremio vice-president Odorico Roman is convinced he is a class act
Gremio forward Luan has been billed as “better than Gabigol and Gabriel Jesus” amid talk of interest from Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.
The 24-year-old is a much sought-after talent, with teams across Europe plotting summer raids for his services.
His current club admit that interest is being shown from various sides, with the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga all potential destinations.
Gremio expect Luan exit
Gremio vice-president Odorico Roman believes the talented forward would not look out of place in any of those divisions, with Luan considered to be the hottest prospect in Brazil at present.
“There are many teams interested in Luan, from all over Europe,” Roman told FCInterNews.
“There’s nothing concrete though, so I can’t name the clubs and it wouldn’t be fair to publicly reveal their intentions.
“The countries? England, Spain, France, Italy, Russia and Germany.
“Luan is a very strong player and a rare talent. He was a protagonist for the Brazil team who were Olympic champions.
“He’s not appreciated in Europe like Gabigol or Gabriel Jesus, but in my opinion he’s better than both.
“He’s 24, so that augments the risk of not adapting the old continent where I don’t think they play the same kind of football, but I repeat, he has great qualities.
No-one in the world like Naby Keita
“I don’t think his value can be far away from Gabigol or Gabriel Jesus. He played more than them in the Olympics, and he’s currently the best striker in Brazil.
“For us the ideal would be sell him now but keep him until the end of the season in December.”
Luan made his senior international debut for Brazil in January, having previously formed part of their gold medal-winning squad at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
