Arsenal Interested In Securing This Young Braziliant Starlet: Should Emery Make A Move Here?

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Arsenal are interested in securing the services of Brazilian whizkid Reinier Jesus. The Gunners are already said to be lining up a bid for the Flamengo star as they aim to shore up their attack. Reinier was notably linked with a move to Real Madrid earlier this year and reportedly had a release clause of £60.5 million.

What can Reinier Jesus bring to the table?

Reinier’s style of play is compared to the legendary Brazilian playmaker Kaka. A dynamic attacking midfielder, the 17-year-old has a tall frame of 185cm that gives a considerable advantage in the air. As a result, the youngster often tends to get into the box and look to be on the end of crosses from the far side. His impressive physique also helps him ride the pressure from defenders and hold onto the ball even under tight situations.

Aside from his physical frame, Reinier loves to take on defenders. He has excellent close control, which coupled with his spatial awareness, allows him to beat his man and ideally carry the ball across half-spaces. The youngster can also deliver those defence-threading through balls when initiating a counter-attack. And this indeed makes him somewhat similar to Kaka.

However, what makes Reinier such a sought-after talent in Brazilian football is his vicious right foot that enables him to attempt shots from a distance. He has scored a lot of goals from a considerable range in the youth leagues. And this makes him much more productive as well as more proficient from direct free-kicks.

Should Arsenal make a move for Reinier?

Arsenal will have some negotiating to do if they are to prise away Reinier from Flamengo. As iterated earlier, the 17-year-old has a staggering release clause of £60.5 million, which is way more than their reported transfer kitty of only £40 million this summer.

Besides, being only 17, the youngster won’t be able to join the ranks at Arsenal until he turns 18 at the start of next year. Furthermore, his lack of experience at the highest level of football means that he might find it difficult to integrate to the fast-paced nature of the Premier League. 

Hence, the Gunners should shift their focus to a more well-established yet cheaper alternative as they look to comply with their small transfer kitty this summer.
