Zenit could trade Wendel for Flamengo striker

Zenit can exchange Wendel for the Flamengo striker.

The Brazilian club is interested in signing the blue-white-blue midfielder. According to Metaratings.ru, one of the options for the transfer could be an exchange for striker Pedro Abreu.

The Petersburgers want to see the striker, but at the same time they doubt the need to sign Pedro, who played outside of Brazil only in Italy, which could complicate the player’s adaptation in Europe.

Flamengo do not really want to include Pedro in a deal for Wendel, but offer striker Gabriel Barbosa. However, Gabigol does not suit the head coach of the Russian team Sergei Semak, the parties continue to contact.

In the 2023 Brazilian Championship season, Pedro played 12 matches for Flamengo and scored 4 goals. Detailed statistics of the 26-year-old footballer can be found here.
