It’s no secret that Atletico Madrid are interested in Reinier. But who isn’t?
The latest reports in Spain suggest that Atletico Madrid are poised to land Flamengo forward Reinier.
Reinier made 10 appearances across all competitions for Flamengo, scoring 3 goals and supplying 2 assists in return.
The 17-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Brazil.
Reinier has represented Brazil at Under-17 level, winning 10 caps and scoring 5 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Atletico Madrid.
Diego Simeone wants to sign a new forward and Reinier is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
Reinier would provide a good variety to Atletico Madrid’s attack.
According to Football Espana, “Atletico Madrid are in advanced negotiations to land 17-year-old Brazilian forward Reinier from Flamengo, report Diario AS. The 17-year-old is said to be the latest jewel to emerge from Brazilian football and is widely tipped to have a big future ahead of him at the top level. Reinier only debuted for Flamengo – who are in this year’s Copa Libertadores final and top the Brazilian top-flight – earlier this year, but he already has three goals in just four starts in the league. Reinier has a termination clause of 70 million dollars (approximately €62m) at the Brazilian giants but Atleti are said to be confident in being able to reduce this drastically in a theoretical transfer. Despite not being known widely outside of Brazil, there is said to be a high level of confidence in the nation that Reinier is set to be a star and will command a transfer fee of at least €50m.”

Atletico have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the Brazil international.
If Reinier turns out to be a star like many expect, it could be one of the club’s smartest transfers.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Madrid.
Atletico fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club this winter.
