The 28-year-old was signed by Palmeiras and will join the Club on 1 January 2023 following the expiration of his contract at Palmeiras and has agreed on a deal that will run until June 2026.
The attacking midfielder spent four seasons with Palmeiras, making a total of 211 appearances and scoring 37 goals. He signed off his final campaign by helping them to their 11th Brazilian Série A title last month and winning the division’s Golden Ball award.
Capped once by the Brazil national team, Gustavo will be part of The Reds’ squad that travels to Athens for a six-day training camp next week, as Steve Cooper’s side take on Greek Super League duo Atromitos and Olympiacos on Tuesday 6thand Saturday 10th December respectively.
“I’m very happy to be here, it’s a dream for me,” said Gustavo.
“It’s a new challenge and I can’t wait for it to begin. It’s always been an ambition since I was a little kid to play in Europe, and my dream is to play in the Premier League.
“I’m a technical player but also I’ve developed my game defensively over the past couple of seasons. I’m very dedicated, hard-working and I’m excited to get started now.”
