Liverpool Keeping Tabs On This Brazilian Starlet But Face Man City Competition: A Star In The Making?

According to a recent report by the Daily Mail, Liverpool are monitoring the development of Flamengo attacking midfielder Reinier. The same source has also claimed that the Reds will face stiff competition from Manchester City in pursuit of the Brazilian wonderkid. The Sun had stated back in April last year that the Merseyside outfit were close to signing the South American prospect, but a move failed to materialise back then.

The Rapid Rise Of Reinier In Brazilian Football

Reinier is one of the brightest young stars in South American football. Thus, it is not a surprise to hear about reports claiming that both Man City and Liverpool are keeping tabs on his progress. The 17-year-old has incredible potential to become a world-class midfielder someday which Liverpool could benefit from if they can win the race to land him.

Jurgen Klopp currently has some talented Brazilian players in his squad which include the likes of Roberto Firmino, Fabinho and Alisson Becker. Thus, Reinier won’t have any problems settling into life at Anfield if he decides to make a career-defining move to Merseyside.

The recent success of Phillipe Coutinho and Lucas Leiva serves as further proof that there can be more players from Brazil who would find joy at a top European club like Liverpool.

The Flamengo Under-20 prospect is yet to make a first-team appearance in the Brazilian top-flight, so he would need more time before he is ready to take a step up to the next level. Reinier primarily plays as an attacking midfielder in the number 10 position as he enjoys the freedom of expressing himself in the final third. He has decent pace and can make some dangerous runs behind the opposition backline.

Is Reinier A Star In The Making?

At 17, the Brazilian whizkid needs time to hone his skills before he can prove his worth in the English top-flight. Joining Liverpool’s Academy could help him improve as a player at a quicker pace as he will be able to play with more proven players around him.

The Reds should consider moving in for him soon if they are serious about bringing him to Merseyside. If they play the waiting game, then there is a chance that other top European teams like Man City will prise him away from Flamengo. Reinier is a player worth recruiting as he is a prospect for the future who can be a grand success at Anfield in the coming years.
