Arsenal have an uphill task to navigate if they want to sign Brazilian wonderkid Reinier Jesus with Real Madrid also interested in the player.
The Gunners’ interest has been confirmed by The Sun and they have already made contact with his family over a potential transfer for the player who has a release clause of £60m at Flamengo.
He played a secondary role for Flamengo in their run to the COPA Libertadores title at the end of 2019.
Flamengo are prepared to let Reinier Jesus leave the club for around £38.5m which is lesser than the release clause in the contract of the 17-year-old forward.

The Brazilian has scored six goals in 15 appearances.
Arsenal legend Edu is now the sporting director at the club and he has a positive influence on the Gunners getting Brazilian players.
Brazilian attacker Gabriel Martinelli signed for Arsenal from Ituano in the lower leagues in his native Brazil and Reinier Jesus could follow him to the Emirates Stadium.
Gabriel Martinelli has been a shining light in a poor season for Arsenal after the Brazilian scored eight goals till date in his first season with the North Londoners.
He is presently out of action as a result of a tight hamstring problem.
