FLUMINENSE star Andre Trindade is set to join Fulham after being targeted by Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal, reports suggest.
Andre has been a top target across the Premier League since last summer but the Brazilian giants refused to sell him before the end of Copa Libertadores.

However, Andre looks set to move to Fulham instead “in the coming days”AFP
The midfielder went on to help Fernando Diniz’s side win their first ever Libertadores title earlier this month and that could finally clear the way for a move to England.
According to Canal do Nicola, Fulham could be the ones to land the Brazil international.
The Cottagers stole a march on their Premier League opponents and Andre could put pen to paper “in the coming days” after the international break.
Marco Silva’s side pose as “big favourites” to sign the 22-year-old and have already bid £26.2million.
Fluminense are “pleased” with Fulham‘s offer and the Brazilian has given his seal of approval as he “likes the project” at Craven Cottage.
However, this is not a done deal and United, Liverpool as well as Arsenal could come back for Andre.
Reports previously suggest the defensive midfielder verbally agreed to move to Anfield.
The Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp is looking to add even more quality to his midfield despite the arrivals of Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Ryan Gravenberch and Wataru Endo last summer.
Arsenal are facing the prospect of losing Thomas Partey in January with Juventus pushing for a deal and will need reinforcement as they push for their first Premier League title since 2004.
And United are searching for a No6 to cover for Casemiro but it seems like they will instead focus on a new striker and centre-back in January.
Fulham are very keen on Andre as they see him as the perfect successor to Joao Palhinha.
Silva worries Bayern Munich could come back for Palhinha in the New Year.
Fulham were even among the clubs who sent scouts to the Copa Libertadores Final and watch Andre in action.
