Gremio starlet Luan has joined new PSG star Neymar in the Brazil squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
And Olympic gold-medallist Luan, whose prospective transfer to Spartak Moscow has been delayed as Liverpool have shown interest, will now be hoping to make his competitive senior debut for the five-time world champions.
Tite has led the Selecao to eight consecutive victories in qualifying since his June 2016 appointment, but insists his team is still very much evolving ahead of next year’s showpiece.
However, there were just five changes to his latest squad for World Cup qualifying, most in reserve positions.
Corinthians goalkeeper Cassio replaces Weverton, while Sao Paulo defender Rodrigo Caio comes in for Gil.
Shakhtar Donetsk forward Taison's inclusion sees Diego Souza dropped, as Luan replaces Flamengo's Diego and Gabriel Jesus returns from injury to leave Douglas Costa out in the cold.
