As reported by Sacha Tavolieri, AS Monaco are impressed by Warleson’s (27) performances, and are considering signing the Brazilian goalkeeper from satellite club Cercle Brugge to provide better competition for their current number one Philipp Köhn (25).
The Brazilian had previously found playing time hard to come by as he was second fiddle, first to Thomas Didillon, who went on to sign for Monaco, and then subsequently to Monaco’s Radoslaw Majecki (24), who was on loan at the club last season.
This season, however, Warleson has been able to solidify his spot as the number-one keeper after his impressive start to the season, keeping a total of six clean sheets in 14 games. The Brazilian is subsequently on the radar of the Monagasque team as they look for someone to provide competition for Köhn.
Should the signing come to fruition, it would naturally put the future of Majecki, now back at Monaco from his loan spell, in doubt.
