Sacha Tavolieri is reporting that Monaco are interested in Cercle Brugge’s in form goalkeeper Warleson. The 27-year-old Brazilian has kept six clean sheets in 14 games for the side this season, and Tavolieri is reporting that Monaco see him as an ideal candidate to compete with Phillip Köhn.
Since joining Cercle Brugge in 2020, Brazilian goalkeeper Warleson has had to bide his time. After a COVID-19 disrupted first season, his first full season with Cercle saw him play a back up role to Thomas Didillon. After the latter was signed by Monaco, Warleson may have hoped for an increase in first team opportunities. However, Cercle were able to bring in Monaco’s Polish goalkeeper Radoslaw Majecki, who put in a number of impressive performances to solidify his spot as the clubs number one.
It will be interesting to see what Warleson would prefer, having finally found himself playing first choice football. Moving to Monaco would mean he would once again have to earn his spot over the current first choice in the principality.
