The search for reinforcements in Flamengo intensifies with the arrival of Jorge Jesus to the club and the beginning of the works aiming at the second semester. The club does not hide that it looks for a defender and a center-forward, as a matter of priority.
However, with some Copa America athletes, European window openings and Portuguese coaching indications, some sectors, such as left-back and midfield, are not ruled out to receive new names.
Although he likes to work with an official shirt, Jorge Jesus would also have asked Flamengo to hire another player to attack the field.
Peru's El Bocón and El Comercio sites claim that Andre Carrillo, currently playing for the Copa América for the Peruvian national team and with whom the Portuguese coach worked for Sporting, Portugal and Al-Hilal, Saudi Arabia , would be the name of the time.
At 28, the player has a contract with Al-Hilal until June 30, but he belongs to Benfica, from Portugal. Before the experience in the Arab world, the striker played for Watford, England, and is constantly called by the selection of his country, having played the Russian Cup in 2018. The Portuguese newspaper 'O Jogo' also highlighted the Rubro-Negro .
André Carrillo started his career at Alianza de Lima in 2009. In 2011 he was hired by Sporting, where he played for five years with 162 matches and 16 goals.
In 2016 he moved to Benfica, but was loaned twice: for Watford, there are 30 matches and two goals, and for Al-Hilal, 26 matches and four goals. Sprinter, the striker compensates for the few goals with plays by the tips and fast composition. For the Peruvian National Team, the player has 61 games and six goals.
