Among the names considered to join the club , are Marcos Antônio, Paquetá and Claudinho. arrivalthese players are seen as essential to giving more creativity and dynamism to Flamengo's midfield. Marcos Antônio, currently at Shakhtar Donetsk, is a young and promising midfielder who can add a lot to the team's creative sector.



EVER CLOSER

As for Paquetá, with notable spells at Milan and currently at West Ham, he is an old acquaintance of the Red and Black fans and his return is highly anticipated. Claudinho, who stood out at RB Bragantino and currently plays for Zenit, is also a coveted piece for Flamengo to add more quality to the squad.


But Flamengo's attention is not just focused on the midfield. The directory is also keeping an eye on other positions that need reinforcements. The right back is one of the priorities, especially if Wesley, currently the holder of the position, is traded. Wesley's departure would open a significant gap that the club urgently needs to fill. The right wing is another area where Flamengo is looking for more options, considering that the team has faced difficulties in finding consistency in that position.
