Arsenal fans react to interest in Brazilian starlet Reinier Jesus

Having seen Gabriel Martinelli make a barn-storming impression at the club despite arriving to relatively little fanfare, it is little surprise to hear that Arsenal are reportedly eyeing up the Brazilian market once again.

Martinelli joined from FC Ituano in the summer for a fee in the region of £6m, and has made a stunning start to life in north London. The 18-year-old has already struck seven times in nine games this season, including a memorable brace at Anfield against Liverpool.

Now, Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo claim Arsenal have contacted Flamengo starlet Reinier Jesus’ father about potentially bringing him to the Emirates too. The report adds that the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, PSG and Manchester City are also interested in signing the 17-year-old, who has scored five in ten for Brazil’s U17s.

After hearing about their club’s links to the teenager, Arsenal fans flooded to Twitter to voice their thoughts on their reported transfer target.

Many supporters of the north London side urged their club to get the signing done as soon as possible, and insisted technical director Edu (formerly Brazil’s general co-ordinator), should receive a load of credit if they can pull it off.
