Arsenal are reportedly looking to sign Reinier Jesus from Flamengo, despite the Brazilian teen’s release clause being set at £60m.
Highly-rated Flamengo youngster Reinier Jesus has emerged as a rumoured transfer target for Arsenal.
The Gunners have been scouting the Brazilian market to unearth a hidden gem due to their small budget, which is rumoured to be around the £40m mark after missing out on Champions League football.
Tuttomercatoweb claims that Jesus is one of the players on Unai Emery‘s radar, though his release clause currently stands at £60m and Flamengo will need convincing if they are to let him leave for less.
Due to FIFA rules, however, the youngster will not be allowed to officially complete the move until turning 18 next year.
