Corinthians defender Felipe and Luan of Vasco are two options for Bayer Leverkusen in the summer
Signing a defender is one of the main objectives of German side Bayer Leverkusen, and they are eyeing two defenders from Brazil for the upcoming transfer window.
According to the information from Brazilian journalist Bruno Andrade, representatives of Bayer Leverkusen will arrive in Brazil in April to monitor and closely analyse two Brazilians defenders; Felipe of Corinthians, and Luan of Vasco. More experienced, and one of the best defenders from the Brasileirão last year, 26-year-old Felipe would be the priority for Leverkusen, at the moment. The recent call up to the Brazilian national team would've given the player more recognition, and to further drew the attention of the Germans. Remember that, Felipe, who has a contract until the end of 2019 with Corinthians, is also in the sights of teams in Italy and was on the verge of being sold to French club Monaco earlier this year. Luan, one of the few highlights of Vasco from the last Brazilian Championship, recently renewed his contract until the end of 2019. The player came to negotiate with Corinthians before extending the bond at Vasco, and is seen as a key player for the future by Leverkusen.
