Leeds United are interested in a deal to bring Renyer to Elland Road in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report by Portuguese publication Record (via SempreMilan), who claim that both Leeds and Benfica have now entered into negotiations with Santos regarding a move for the left-footed right winger.
A further report by SemperMilan.it revealed that, according to their information, the Brazilian side would be willing to part with the former Brazil U17 international for as little as €2m (£1.7m) this summer – with both AC Milan and AFC Fiorentina also believed to be keen on a move for the 19-year-old.
Considering the sheer amount of potential Renyer evidentially possesses, in addition to a number of top-level clubs reported to be interested in the teenager’s signing this summer, should Orta manage to get a deal over the line for the forward ahead of Milan, Benfica and Fiorentina, it would undoubtedly represent a massive coup for the Whites.
Indeed, despite being just 19 years of age, Renyer has already made seven senior appearances for Santos, with his first team debut coming as a 16-year-old back in January 2020 – making him the Brazilian side’s fifth-youngest debutant in their history.
Furthermore, as of May 31 this year, the £2.25m-rated talent had also scored six goals over three appearances for Santos U20s, seeing him rank as Orlando Ribeiro’s outfit’s top scorer – with Record dubbing Renyer as “the absolute owner” of the youth side.
In terms of his playing style, Jacek Kulig lists the teenager’s strengths as his “pace, acceleration, dribbling, flair, close control, technique and first touch,” while Andre Norueg also dubbed the 19-year-old a “wonderkid.”
As such, should Renyer indeed be available for as little as £1.7m this summer – a significantly lower fee than his €100m (£85m) release clause – it would appear an extremely wise move for Orta to launch an offensive for the Santos starlet, as, considering his undoubted potential, signing the Brazilian for this price would certainly represent an unbelievable deal for the Whites.
