This clue may just give us an idea of who LIV Golf's next signee is

LIV Golf promised they would announce more signees before the end of 2022. 

Yet we are only a few weeks away from the breakaway tour kicking off their second season in Mexico and we still haven't heard a peep.

The golf world has been waiting to see who will be joining the likes of Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and Cameron Smith

One man who has widely been rumoured to be the next player to leave the PGA Tour is the young Chilean Mito Pereira. 

According to The Telegraph, the youngster - who almost won the PGA Championship at Southern Hills in 2022 - has already penned a deal

LIV Golf have not yet made the official announcement yet. They have been known to announce players at interesting times for maximum impact. 

Koepka, in particular, was confirmed as a signee during PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan's annual press conference at the Travelers Championship. 

It has now emerged that Pereira has switched management companies. According to Barstool Sports' Dan Rapaport, he is now being represented by GSE Worldwide. 

GSE is the same agency that represents LIV players Bryson DeChambeau, Paul Casey, Abraham Ancer, Joaquin Niemann, Jason Kokrak, Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen and Carlos Ortiz. 

Previously, Niemann revealed he was doing everything he could to make sure Pereira would leave the PGA Tour. 

It's safe to say he is on the move, although we await the official announcement. 

Who will LIV Golf sign next? 

With billions of dollars behind the breakaway tour, it is clearly the case that absolutely nobody is off limits. 

It was interesting to see three PGA Tour members request releases to play the forthcoming PIF Saudi International. 

PIF, of course, bankroll LIV. 

Cameron Young, the reigning PGA Tour rookie of the year, Cameron Champ, Lucas Herbert and Jhonattan Vegas will play the event in Jeddah. 

Could these four be in the next batch of signings? 

Champ, in particular, has been struggling with injuries. During the wraparound season, Champ missed five cuts in events.
